Could you help a blind runner (a beginner?)

Please see below an email from Christine Benning, our local UKA rep. As you can see, UKA could help.  I will pass this on to local parkrun groups, too.  Please get in touch with Chris directly if you can help (but copy me in to the email if poss - lou@louwalker.com).


We are looking for a runner in the Winchester area who could support a visually impaired person aged 24, who would like to start running.  Kate has not run before.  I wondered if we could find a volunteer or volunteers, either from the club or from a local Run England group who might be interested.

I can set up a workshop (Sight Loss Awareness and Guide Running Workshop) if required, or do a session for a small group of volunteers or a 1 to 1.

Regards,

Chris
