F1 >>> nEWs MAY THE forcE bE wITH THEM ... Force India, used to thundering around world famous grand prix circuits, will step off the beaten track when a group of volunteers from the team compete in a half marathon through the streets of London in support of a bone cancer charity. As many as fifteen members working in the Silverstone-based outfit’s design, production and administration teams will compete in the Royal Parks Half Marathon in support of the Bone Cancer Research Trust charity. The Bone Cancer Research Trust was formed in 2006 by a group of parents who have lost children to the disease – which mainly affects children, teenagers and youngsters – in an effort to raise awareness and fund research aimed at improving the outcome for sufferers. Apart from conducting research into and raising awareness of the disease, the Trust also offers support to sufferers and their families and is putting together a support network so that those fighting bone cancer and their families can share their experiences. The marathon will flag off at nine in the morning on 6 October with competitors running along a 13.1 mile route that winds its way through Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and Green Park. Runners will also be able to take in views of some of London’s landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall. “While our race team will just be finishing their race in Korea, we will be picking up the baton and running our own team in the Half Marathon, hoping for less than a two-stop strategy and that all of our dedicated, possibly slightly mad runners all cross the finish line in one piece!,” a post on the Force India half marathon team’s page read. Donations can be made at the team’s JustGiving page: http://www.justgiving.com/BCRT-Force and donors are eligible to enter a lucky draw giving three lucky winners the chance to win some Force India merchandise and a print from award- winning photographer James Moy, all signed by race drivers Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta. All donations made before midnight British Standard Time on 6 October will be eligible for the raffle. 10 GPWEEK.com // 10 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
