Friars alum runs ultra-marathon for Pilgrims Hospice

Date Posted: Thursday 03 June 2021

On 31 May 2021, Friars alum Rob Playford (Tigers, Friars, 1992), ran a massive 50km solo (an ultra-marathon) to raise money for Pilgrims Hospice, a charity close to his family’s hearts.

Rob’s running route took him from the Ashford Pilgrims Hospice to Canterbury Pilgrims Hospice and back again, following the pilgrim’s route through Wye, Brook and surrounding villages.

He successfully completed the run in 4.5 hours, and so far, he has raised over £4000 for Pilgrims Hospice.

Rob’s fundraising goal is £5000. If you would like to help him achieve this, please donate via his JustGiving page.

Congratulations to Rob on both this amazing sporting achievement, and on raising money for this fantastic local charity!
