3:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in News
AN appeal for people to keep one of Harwich’s biggest annual events running has been launched.
The 15th and final Discovery Run was held last weekend with organisers stepping down.
Now Harwich Mayor Dave McLeod has called on the public to stop the iconic event from dying off.
He said: “It has been an annual event for 15 years and I want someone to take it on keep it running.
“So many young people were there on Saturday. It is good for the town – it is good for the Hook and for here.
“People from all over Holland come for the run. I don’t think it should just stop.
“It brings people into the town. We don’t want to lose anything else from Harwich.”
