A man is set to prove he’s hardcore when he takes part in the Wolf Run - a wild running event.

Anthony Clarke, who lives in Lyddington and is a director of Clarke and Roskrow Optometrists in Market Harborough will take on the challenge ina id of the International Glaucoma Association and The Laura Centre. He is aiming to raise £500 for each charity

The Wolf Run is – a unique combination of three kinds of off-road running, a hardcore 10km run across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woods, lakes and thick mud!

Anthony will be running with friends as part of a larger “wolf-pack”. He has not done anything like this before.

Training is already well under way for this event, which will take place in Warwickshire on Sunday, April 10.

The two causes are close to Anthony’s heart. The International Glaucoma Association is the charity providing support for people who have glaucoma - the leading cause of preventable blindess. As a glaucoma specialist who regularly sees the effects of this chronic disease, Anthony wants to raise money for this important national charity.

The Laura Centre is a Leicester-based charity providing specialist bereavement counselling to parents whose child has died and to children or young people who have been bereaved of a parent or other significant person. To mark the 25th anniversary of the early death of his brother at the age of 19 years Anthony Clarke wants to raise money for this important charity.
