A retired criminal lawyer will lace up his running shoes to help a new running event in aid of a children’s charity.
Paul Forshaw will take on the role of last runner marshal at the hoohaah run on Sunday April 27 at Ickworth House, in Horringer, which will raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The 61-year-old, of Exning, headed the Crown Prosecution Service office in Bury and dealt with cases at the town’s magistrates’ court before retiring to care for his wife who has Multiple Sclerosis.
He devotes his spare time to running and volunteering and took part in his first run and half marathon five years ago in aid of Multiple Sclerosis.
He said: “My job (at hoohaah) is to make sure everyone finishes safely so I’ll be running at the back.”
The closing date for entries for the event at Ickworth House is Sunday April 20.
The race starts at 9.30am for the 5km and 10am for the 10km.
Entry fees for 5km are £9 for an adult and £5 for a junior while the 10km is £18 for an adult. To sign up visit www.hoohaah.co.uk
