Rochdale AFC in association with Dale In The Community Sports Trust and The Dale Supporters Trust are for the second year running, holding a charity pub run / walk to Oldham Athletics ground prior to the Derby Day fixture on Saturday 22nd April.
Funds raised will be donated to three worthy charities – Bloodwise (Joe Thompson’s designated charity), Prostate Cancer UK and former Dale Academy Player - Ellis Robinson, who continues his fight to walk again following a tragic accident 12 months ago which left him paralysed from the neck down.
Supporters are encouraged to join us on the run / walk and donate generously!
Those who took part last year can verify what a great day it was, with a pleasant stroll / jog up Oldham Road punctuated by a couple of pub stops and a magnificent 3-2 victory to round things off.
The plan is similar to last time:
From 10am: Meet outside the RAFC Club Shop at the Crown Oil Arena
Walkers to set off at 10.15am
Runners to set off at 11am
Pit-stop 1 – The Flying Horse Hotel, Rochdale town centre (1.2miles)

Feel free to call at more pubs en-route and don’t forget to bring your buckets for donations along the way!
