Rachel needs our help. The Cheltenham Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 15th September. Around 2000 runners are expected to take to the streets of Cheltenham to run the course either for themselves, or to raise money for charity. The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is one of the charity partners for the half marathon and I would love to get as many people around the course, to cheer the runners on, as possible. The route is on the website – www.cheltenhamhalf.co.uk If you can wear RED for BHF, that would be even better! Invite your friends, have a day out!
