The Mouse is back (and so is the Hospiscare Breakfast Run)!


There was a surprise in store for children at Heathcoat Primary School in Tiverton last Tuesday when an unusual competitor turned up and took part in their annual sports day.

School children, teachers and parents alike were thrilled to see George the Mouse arrive, but their delight turned to surprise when the 6ft mouse lined up alongside the children to take part in the races.

Enquiries revealed that George is in training for this year’s Hospiscare Breakfast Run, which is taking place on 30 September at Knightshayes Court, near Tiverton and is kindly sponsored by Brightsea Print Group. He knows there will be some fit cuddly toys and their owners taking part, and fears getting left behind at the start.

 

George at Sports Day

 

Those wanting to join George on the run are invited to turn up in their pyjamas if they wish (it’s not compulsory) and bring their teddies or other furry friends to run, jog or walk the 5k or 10k routes through the beautiful parkland of the Knightshayes estate.

To boost early-morning energy levels, water and bananas will be on offer before the start, while on return a delicious bacon butty, or vegetarian alternative, and a hot drink will be available from the Stables Cafe.

Organiser Sharon Ewart said: “The Breakfast Run is a family-friendly event open to all ages, and to dogs too, and there is no pressure to get round. We want people to have a fun time in the beautiful countryside around Knightshayes while raising funds for Hospiscare. It’s a perfect start to an autumn Sunday.

“You can sign up online at www.breakfastrun.org.uk or by calling us on 01392 688020. Entry is £17 for an adult and £12 for a child under 16, who must be accompanied. For a family of two adults and two children entry is £45, or £55 for a team of four.”
 

The Breakfast Run

 

Asked to comment on George’s unusual training regimen, Sharon said: “I’ve seen George recently and he was a bit coy about how and where he intends to continue his training. But if you see him out and about, do give him a wave.”
