GUTS Fighting Bowel Cancer opens registration for annual fundraising charity run

GUTS Fighting Bowel Cancer has officially opened registration for its annual fundraising run, The Bolt, which takes place on April 3rd 2016. Sponsored by BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital and organised by aat events, for the first time in seven years the race will be held at a new course over the Loseley Park Estate, closer to the charity’s base at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. The race has previously been staged at Alice Holt Forest near Farnham.

The race offers three distances, 5k, 10k and 21k, with a 5k race for juniors and a 1k fun run for children aged 6-9. Cani-cross runners (ie with harnessed dogs) are also welcome.

The charity’s manager, Nerissa Deeks said: “Loseley Estate offers some fresh challenges for those who have taken part in the race previously - there are more hills but that extra effort is more than compensated by the fabulous views and variety that the course offers. We are delighted to be working alongside aat events once again and especially pleased to have the support of BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital, who will also be providing free post-run sports massages and physio advice.”

Starbucks will also be supporting the event, Guildford running shop Fitstuff will be sponsoring prizes for the winners of each distance and Stanley’s Patch will be providing prizes for the four-legged runners. Businesses interested in sponsorship opportunities can contact the charity on 01483 408316 or visit to find out more.
