Swimming ace to be guest at Ramsey 10k
PARALYMPIC swimming star Lauren Steadman will be the guest of honour at the Ramsey 10k on June 13.
Organisers Ramsey Road Runners are trying to raise funds to support Steadman in her run-up to the 2012 Paralympics. Her sister Ellen has been a member of the club for four years.
Steadman, a member of the British quartet that broke the world 4x100m freestyle record, will run the race and then present the prizes, while Ellen will run the 3k fun run.
Steadman (right) said: “I am honoured and proud to be supported by Ramsey Road Runners, especially as it is my sister’s club.
“It will give me great pleasure to present the trophies and to run the event.”
The 10k, part of the Cambs Road League, gets under way at 11am with the 3k fun run at 10am.
The race will support the Sue Ryder Care Thorpe Hall Hospice as well as Steadman.
Closing date for postal or online entries is next Wednesday.
Entries will be taken up to 10.30am (9.30am for fun run) on the day if the 500 limit has not been reached. For further information contact Adrian Graham on 01487 812829 or visit www. ramseyroadrunners. org.uk where race forms can be downloaded.
