BTME Early Bird runners

The Syngenta BTME Early Bird Run is back for 2022. You can register here, to join us on Wednesday 23 March, at 6.30am, by the Conference Centre entrance (see T&C's below).

And to get you off and running we're offering a free pair of shorts for those who sign up*.

Add them to the Hicure running shirts and socks from previous events - it's the complete kit to promote health and vigour.

Hicure running shorts

You don't need to be at Harrogate to get the Hicure shorts offer. Simply sign up for your pair and agree to record a 5K activity during BTME week and you can help raise up to £1000 from Syngenta for the BIGGA Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund.  Tick the box in the registrat6ion form that you are not intending to run at BTME.

Also, join up with the Hicure Run Club on Strava to see how loads of other greenkeepers and turf industry colleagues are getting on with their programmes to stay healthy and strong. It will also let us know when you've completed the 5K to add to the fund raising total - we'll give £10 for everyone who completes it to raise up to £1000.
