With less than one week to go, Fareham Borough Council is reminding residents to secure their place on the Solent Airport 5K run taking place on Sunday 11 June.

The fun-run has been organised in aid of Naomi House & Jacksplace which enhances families’ lives through the provision of supportive respite care and specialist medical care for life limited and life threatened children and young adults.

This 5k one-of-a-kind event offers runners over 16 years an unforgettable experience on a flat, straight and obstacle-free route. The run will be chip timed and runners of all abilities and speeds are welcome. Start time is 8am and entry is just £12.50.

Charlotte Patrick, Senior Events Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said: “This is such an exciting event which has been made possible by Solent Airport and Fareham Borough Council, we are really thankful for their joint support. Participants will need to be quick as there are limited places available.”

Martyn Francis, Airport Manager at Solent Airport added: “It is with immense pleasure that Solent Airport can play host to such an exciting charity event. Being able to raise money through this unique opportunity will hopefully bring Naomi House & Jacksplace the support that is needed for the ongoing hard work of this fantastic charity”
