Do you like the idea of running and raising money for PTSD Resolution?

 

PTSD Resolution is a charity helping veterans, territorial army and reservists who are struggling to settle back into a normal work and family life because of military trauma suffered during service in the armed forces. So why not set yourself a 2019 challenge and run for us, while raising money for a worthwhile cause. 

A PTSD Resolution t-shirt or running vest will be provided for all runners and a wrist band for each participant.
