Rugby legend, TV pundit and stroke survivor Gareth Thomas is calling on people in Slough to sign up for the Resolution Run at Black Park in March.

The run is being held in aid of the Stroke Association on Sunday, March 15.

Participants can choose their distance from 5k, 10k or 15k alternatives. Black Park at Wexham is just one of 34 venues across the UK this spring hosting the runs.

Gareth himself had a stroke aged 28. He says: “I had a stroke and know all too well that recovery is as individual as each survivor. That’s why the Stroke Association is encouraging people to join its Resolution Run and raise funds to help rebuild more lives after stroke.”

Joanna Burr, Regional Fundraising Manager at the Stroke Association said: “Life after stroke is different for us all, but there is one way we can stand together. The Resolution Run is the perfect opportunity to mark a milestone in your own stroke recovery, show your support for a friend or family member affected by stroke, or in memory of a loved one. It’s more than a run, it’s a resolution to help rebuild lives after stroke in the region.”

There are 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK. The Stroke Association provides specialist support, funds critical research and campaigns for the best care and support to help people rebuild their lives.

Entry fee for the run is just £15. Walk or run, all participants will receive a medal waiting at the finish line. To join the resolution run, visit, email or call 0300 330 0740.
