Richard Evans, an Herefordshire based long distance runner, ran Hereford half marathon on the Sunday 8th May, 2022 to raise funds for Hope Spring water charity. Mr Evans, a long term supporter of Hope Spring poverty relief programs, put on his sport shoes to complete the13.1 long hauls distance through the streets of Hereford and around the surrounding townlets. 

 About a month before the event, Richard declared his intention to partake in the Run Hereford Half Marathon 2022 to raise funds for the charity. “ I’m running the Hereford half marathon 2022 to support the work of Hope Spring water. ” said Mr Evans. 

Run Hereford Half Marathon is a feat of achievement that will take you through Herefordshire’s beautiful yet undulating countryside. Though, half the distance of a full marathon, the satisfaction is just as great when crossing the finish line. To partake in the marathon, runners must be at least 17 years old. 

Speaking on the recent fundraising work by Richard, Hope Spring Water trustee Temi Odurinde said, “ Richard is one of our long standing supporters. When it comes to events to do with long distance running, Richard is always there for us. ” Temi added “ before the pandemic, Hope Spring organised a yearly 5K fun run, Richard was the major player of that event. We were absolutely pleased when he opted to run the Hereford half marathon to fundraise for us ”.
