Event description

Description

A one hour talk from Doug on his running travels around the world but focussing on his trip to Antarctica in March 2018 where he completed his goal of running at least a half marathon on each of the Earth's seven continents.

The talk will take place in the magnificent main hall of Hewell Grange, which is also an open prison and we hope that many of the residents will join us. For security reasons, no phones, cameras, alcohol or drugs (including prescription drugs) will be permitted into the venue. It is also a no smoking venue. We ask that you print your ticket and bring it with you.

Visitors are welcome from 7pm when refreshments and cake will be available. If you require disabled access to the venue, can you please let us know beforehand so that arrangements can be put in place. The prison staff will have a camera if anybody would like a photograph taken in the hall. The talk will start promptly at 7:30pm and refreshments will be available again afterwards, as well as an opportunity to buy a signed copy of Doug's books, 'Running Hot & Cold' (£10) and 'Can We Run With You, Grandfather?' (£13). A collection will be made for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity during the evening. In addition, £2 from the sale of each book and the proceeds from the refreshments will also go to the charity. Departure will be at 9pm.
