PADDINGTON Bear is encouraging families to take part in the official Walk Cycle or Run the North West 200 on Sunday (May 13) to raise vital funds for his favourite children’s charity Action Medical Research.
Our favourite bear is being supported by the Ballymoney Cycling Club, the 2011 Cycling Ulster Club of the Year and The Relentless International North West 200 who have helped to make this event possible.
Departing from the Paddock and following the Relentless International North West 200 circuit this event takes participants through the beautiful countryside, coastline and seaside towns of Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine.
Registration opens at 9:30am and closes at 10:45am. Cyclists will set off from 10:00am, runners from 10:30am, walkers from 11:00am and families with children from 11:00am. Entry is £10 per adult, children free.
It really is as easy as putting one foot in front of the other and Paddington will be putting his best paw forward to support participants on the day.
By getting involved you can combine having a great time with friends and family with doing something really positive that will make a huge difference to so many families in the future.
So what are you waiting for? Follow in the footsteps of motorsport giants: stroll past the famous York Hairpin, pedal through Mather’s Cross, jog round Metropole Corner.
