A team of runners Wrexham are pulling on their trainers and taking on the Chester 10k in aid Hope House Children’s Hospices.

The 16 runners from Net World Sports, which includes novices and more experienced runners, all get together at lunchtimes and after work to run.

They have now set themselves the challenge to taking on the Chester 10k together on Sunday 10 March.

Jessica​​​​ Adie, Senior Platform Executive and organiser of the running group said: “We’re loving getting out at lunchtimes for our 10K training.

“This is a great way for us to socialise, set ourselves new challenges and get fit whilst supporting a great cause.

“Training is going well and we’re all on track to set some new PBs!”

Net World Sports, based on Wrexham Industrial Estate, has been supporting the charity since 2014.

It has so far raised more than £32,000 to support seriously ill local children.

Cat Dowdeswell, Fundraiser at Hope House Children’s Hospices, said: “We are so grateful to Net World Sports for all its incredible support over the years.

“Without amazing local businesses like this, we would not be here for the local children and families that need our support.

“Thank you also to the runners who have been putting themselves through their paces to get prepared for the 10K.

“Best of luck to you all, we can’t wait to see you cross the finish line.”
