College students and Principal run 10 miles to raise town centre profile

06 October 2014

College Principal Campbell Christie CBE and Special Constable Jonathan Hodge, also a Uniformed Public Service student representing Thames Valley Police, will run 10 miles within Bracknell town centre to help raise the town’s profile and draw attention to its forthcoming regeneration.

The runners will be supported by college Uniformed Public Services students who will be stewarding the route to make sure shoppers know all about the purpose of the run. The students will also take it in turns to join Campbell and Jonathan running some laps of the town centre.

The runners’ student support team will also be raising money for the Bracknell Forest Mayor’s chosen charity the Thames Valley and Chilterns Air Ambulance.

The route for the run will be as follows: 

Campbell Christie said:

“Bracknell & Wokingham College's vision is to be 'in the heart of the community' and today's run is an excellent way of realising that vision. 

“The college will be playing a big part in delivering the skills that will be needed as a result of the Town Centre regeneration and our run through the town centre helps to emphasize the recent good news about the regeneration plans. 

“It is also a great way to support the Mayor's charity and gives my students the opportunity to get involved and volunteer their time for a good cause".

The Bracknell Forest Mayor will be in attendance to wave the runners off at 8.30am.
