The Tim Bacon Foundation is hosting its first major event of the post-pandemic era with a 10k running challenge in Manchester.

Urging the hospitality to get involved, the TBF Hospitality Team Challenge will take place on 26 September. 

The pandemic has hit people with cancer hard, with missed treatments and diagnoses, and the Foundation’s role is to funnel 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,” said Jeremy Roberts, chair of the Tim Bacon Foundation, the charity set up to support cancer causes in memory of the restaurant and bar entrepreneur.

“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.”

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

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, but including, of course, the highest fund raising total.

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.

There is no limit to the number of teams any organisation can enter, but places will go fast so register your teams ASAP. Places cannot be guaranteed until payment is received.
