5km or Brum to Mongolia, it’s up to you

Couple of charity events been brought to my attention this week. One a simple(!) 5 killometre run starting and finishing in Perry Park. It’s no marathon-length BRMB Walkathon, but if you fancy a trot round Great Barr then entries are now being accepted and the run itself is on May 3rd.

The other event you’re not being asked to take part in, and you’ll thank your god or the random nature of the world that you aren’t. For four brave and stupid Brummies are going to drive a VW Golf all the way to Mongolia, and Charile Boorman’s sweaty face won’t be anywhere near them.

“Essentially we will be driving a knackered 1.2l Car from Goodwood Race course to Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia, completely unsupported and entirely for charity…”

They’re not off until July, but are setting up stall around Brum a few times before then and have a website with all the info on – tgbrally.com.
