Runners have crafty half at High Lodge charity run




Some people drink beer at the end of a long run, but for a Thetford Forest event on Saturday the alcohol was offered on the way round.

The Street Child Craft Half at High Lodge offered its 150 participants, who took on either the half marathon or 10km route, half pints of some of East Anglia’s finest at every two-mile ‘refuelling station’.

Carol Flint, head of marketing for Street Child, said: “We were delighted that so many people came out to take part on such a dismal snowy day. But it was a great atmosphere and the upside of cold weather was that the craft beer was nicely chilled.”

Street Child helps children in Sierra Leone and the High Lodge has raised more than £10,000, following the first ever Craft Half on Wimbledon Common in 2018

Carol said: “A huge thank you to the runners, everyone who sponsored them and also to our amazing beer sponsors.” To donate to Street Child, go to www.street-child.co.uk/donate.
