RUN THE RIVER

24TH AUGUST 2024

Our Reason For Racing

Elisha Neave

River Run 100 was established by Elisha’s family in 2013 to raise money and awareness for Elisha, as she fought so courageously against a very aggressive and rare form of ovarian cancer. Runners gathered to run the river together in support of Elisha and her battle against cancer.

Sadly, Elisha lost the fight on 30 April 2014 and despite their grief, her family saw River Run 100 as an opportunity to continue to honour their brave and courageous Elisha while also supporting the wider community and the many charities that needed their help.

In the years that have since past, the event has grown welcoming all runners, of all abilities, to come together, run for a cause and raise money for their own charities.

From the words of
Elisha’s family...

“This event will continue to grow and I, along with my family, and those few who were there at the start, will remember why we started, where it came from and enjoy how it grows… From little things, big things grow.”

Sending a quick email to say thanks so much for letting us be part of such a great event on Sunday. All of the Prestige team thoroughly enjoyed being able to help out the participants, it was very motivating chatting to everyone and hearing the different stories. I really enjoyed the atmosphere – particularly the fact that it was buzzing all day, not just for a few hours in the morning.

Sarah Do Rozario

I would first like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, and such a great cause. The run was wellorganised and people and spectators were very accommodating and enthusiastic. I became involved by a mutual friend, and definitely will be back next year. I have completed in a few fun runs over the winter, and thought this was up there. Really enjoyed a massage before the event, as it really loosened me up (great idea).
