Mad Dog 10k 2017
5 February 2017
LoSalt was happy to support the recent The Mad Dog 10k
- an annual event which takes place in Southport on the
North West coast.
It is organised by members of Southport Hesketh Round Table with
all proceeds going to charity - OVER £45,000 raised to
date for local charities and good causes. The Mad Dog 10k
first took place in 2011, originally set up in memory of a member
of Southport Hesketh Round Table who tragically died suddenly.
This prestigious event is a repeated winner of the "Best 10k in
the UK" at the national running awards and opens to entries on
1st of October each year with the 2700 entries normally totally
sold out within 48 hours.
The event is famed for its tremendous atmosphere, the quality of
the event goodie bags, the exceptional organisation, and the live
bands that perform all round the course
Runners at the event receive a T-shirt, which has become a bit
of a badge of honour, with runners taking photographs of themselves
in their shirts all over the world.
Each year the event is themed with past events being called:
- The Good the Bad and the Pugly
- Raiders of the Lost Bark
- Game of Bones
- The Canine Bites Back
……to name but a few
This year was 007 Live and Let Drool
Next year will be Hairy Potter and the Half Bred Pup!
