The Soho Fun Run, organised by Vision, the broadcast, production and post production industry charity, is here again. On 9 July up to 150 teams of three-legged runners, proudly sporting orange Vision Charity T-shirts with their legs bound, will be running through the streets of Soho aiming to win the first prize of a £100 goody bag each.
Runners will have the added bonus of stopping off at check points to solve challenges and sample the delights of the hospitality offered by many of the companies who sponsored the event. Last year these included a water fight at the Rocket stop, an interesting cocktail by Ascent 142 and a Barn Dance by Joint TV.
The race ends at Soho Square where the runners will be treated to a live band and a DJ. This event, which is organised by Bubble & Squeak for Vision Charity raises funds for blind, visually impaired and dyslexic children and is supported by the Audio Visual and Broadcast Industry.
Tickets are £45.00 per team and £20.00 per person for the party; the ticket includes drink tokens and a snack.
Larry Davis, executive director at Vision Charity, said: “We are delighted to have brought this event back to Soho which is thoroughly enjoyable for all concerned. We are very grateful to all our loyal sponsors and look forward to meeting you all on the day.”
The current sponsors of the Soho Fun Run are root6, Fineline Media Finance, Digital Vision, Filmlight, Ascent Media, Avid, Londontown with lots more to follow. www.visioncharity.co.uk
