Get ready for the happiest 3K you’ll ever walk, dance or run. Can you help us make this years event even more of a success. Last year we raised over £14,500 to support Macmillan’s work in Shropshire.
The colour run is designed to be a happy, enjoyable day for all ages. It celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community while experiencing the uniqueness of the British Ironwork Centre. The Colour Run is a three-kilometre, un-timed race in which participants are doused from head to toe in different colours from various paint stations around the course.
A great opportunity to visit the British Ironwork Centre with all the family with refreshments available on the day.
As part of the Hermon’s Education, Arts & Development Talks (H.E.A.D) The Hermon welcomes back to the stage Emily Chappell: endurance cyclist, author and founder member of the remarkable cycle collective The Adventure Syndicate! Look forward to a captivating combined talk & reading from Emily’s new book on the brink of release, followed by a Q.&A. session and book-signing!
Emily Chappell is an author, adventurer and advocate, known for her long-distance bicycle journeys and the words, with which she shares them. Her first book’What Goes Around’ was described by The Guardian as “a lovely lyric poem to the city” and told the story of her years as a London cycle courier – the hidden corners of the city, the honest agony of cold toes and tired legs, the blissful moments when bike and body and city fall into harmony, and the endless encounters with London’s rich and ever-changing cast of characters.
Her second book ‘Where There’s A Will’, due for release on 7th November 2019, follows Chappell’s journey into the curious world of long-distance self-supported bike races, and gives a unique insight into how it feels to race across a continent: cycling through both sunrise and sunset, sleeping only for snatched minutes in fields and forests, navigating through mountain ranges and along remote unpaved roads, and searching out food along the way. Chappell captures the loneliness and unexpected camaraderie of long-distance racing, and intricately describes the moments of joy, despair, confidence and self-doubt that her mind cycles through as she pushes her body to the limit.
An engaging and humorous speaker, Chappell will tell the improbable story of how she ended up winning the 4,000km Transcontinental Race across Europe, read aloud from’Where There’s A Will’ and answer questions about every aspect of cycling and writing books.
