Tim Bacon Foundation launches Challenge Cup for Great Manchester Run

Related tags Tim bacon Charity Restaurant

The Tim Bacon Foundation (TBF), set up in honour of restaurant and bar entrepreneur Tim Bacon, is encouraging members of the hospitality sector to enter the Great Manchester Run to raise funds for cancer charities.

The 10K run will be the first major running event of the post-pandemic era and takes place in Manchester on 26 September. The charity has launched the Hospitality Team Challenge to encourage members from the hospitality sector to get involved.

The fittest and fastest hospitality team on the day will win the TBF Challenge Cup, and there will be prizes for the fastest oldest team, the fastest women’s team, the fastest men’s team plus other categories to be announced, including the highest fund raising total.

The pandemic has hit people with cancer hard, with missed treatments and diagnoses, and this will give hospitality the opportunity to show its true character and raise much needed cash, it says.  The foundation will then funnel the raised funds to local cancer causes chosen by the hospitality industry.

“Compete against fellow hospitality companies, against your company colleagues or just take part for fun in this major event,” says Jeremy Roberts, chair of the Tim Bacon Foundation.

“We all want to stay healthy in mind and body and what better way to fight the pandemic blues by getting involved - and raising money for people living with cancer,” added Roberts.

The entry fee for teams of four will be £300 per team, which will include a donation to TBF, race entry fee, a t-shirt and entry and drink at the post run party in central Manchester.

TBF will create a Virgin Money Giving page for organisations to raise additional funds should you wish - but there is no minimum fund raising requirement.
