As the Marathon for a Drug-Free UK enters its third week, news is reaching us from Moss Side and Salford in Manchester, on up through Bradford and into Yorkshire!
The marathon runners take 3 weeks or more out of their busy schedules to do this marathon, and whilst running up the length of the country, they give lectures to school children giving them the Truth About Drugs, as well as giving an education pack on Truth About Drugs to local police as you can see here in Moss Side, Manchester. Radio interviews are also given like this one here in Salford, Manchester, as well as handing out Truth About Drugs Booklets in the busy shopping streets of each town that they visit. The marathon also urge local businesses to sign the pledge showing their support. Here we have the owner of a boxing club showing his support by signing the pledge.
Here we have a shop owner in Bradford reading his copy of the Truth About Drugs booklet.
The Marathon for a Drug-Free UK runners are sponsored by G&G Vitamins who supplied the supplements the runners needed to supplement their diet to support the increased demands of their body on this mammoth marathon.
