It’s been decade since Pete Stephenson and Jimmy Gittins took part in the original SPF challenge when Steve Prescott led a group of ex-rugby league players and supporters on a cycle ride from Perpignan to Wembley in aid of The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and the RFL Benevolent Fund. Now, in the anniversary year of that epic trip, they’re ready to do it all again and take part in Challenge Wembley.
GPW Recruitment St Helens 10k run 2019 was a great success despite appalling weather conditions
The 9th annual GPW Recruitment St Helens 10k run took place on Sunday 10th March despite appalling weather conditions. The 10k run is organised by the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) in association with principal sponsor GPW Recruitment and it was a real privilege to welcome the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu and his entourage to the event. The Archbishop of York gave all the runners a special Blessing before the event and was present to start the race. The Mayor of St Helens Cllr Pat Ireland and Mayoress Lynne Glover were also on hand to start the race of 1699 runners from the Totally Wicked Stadium amid cold driving rain and strong winds.
