Run Around The Grounds 2020
Tuesday, 22nd Jun 2021 11:54

Since March 2020, Nathan Richardson has been running to and in between all 92 grounds. A total distance of approximately 2,500 miles.

He originally planned for it to take 6 months but has had to stop three times for lockdowns. During this time, he has been funding himself and relying on the generosity of ordinary people up and down the country to give him a bed for the night or come out and support him. He's also been carrying all his belongings on his back. He's the first person ever to do this (to be honest, you can see why can't you, it's madness) and what he has done is truly inspiring.
After turning to running when suffering with his own mental health, he decided to do this to support the mental health charity Mind as well as another great cause in the Bury-based The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and to generally promote the positive effects of running.

His final run will take him to his 92nd ground of 92 and all details are below. The route is the blue one on in the second picture. Anyone is welcome to join him for all or part of his final run (just let Nathan know by DM in advance) and all donations are welcome, however small. It's also his 30th, so the least you can do is buy him a pint after!

Please do what you can to support this amazing achievement by following the donation link below and/or joining Nathan on the final leg this Saturday:



Time: Saturday 26th June. Meeting at Gigg lane, Bury and running to the Crown Oil Arena (home of the mighty Rochdale AFC). Leaving at 11am from Gigg Lane. Hoping to arrive at the Crown Oil at around 12 pm. If you’re coming out to see the runners finish, it is best to arrive around 11:45 am at Crown Oil.

Route: Taking the blue route on the picture, it’s all paved and as you can see only 300ft elevation and roughly 6.3 miles. Pace will be steady and no one will be left behind.

Celebrations: in the Medicine Tap (The Medicine Tap) from 1 pm onwards.
