Calling all runners and cyclists – help fight antibiotic resistance – ANTRUK’s 2018 Sporting Events Programme

Colin Garner Get involved

Did you know that antibiotic resistance threatens modern medicine. Without effective antibiotics most modern day medical treatments would become more risky if not impossible. Antibiotic Research UK (ANTRUK) is the world’s first and only charity fighting antibiotic resistance. Help us raise money towards our mission of research, education and patient support. If antibiotics stop working even a simple graze or cut could kill.

Here is a list of running and cycling events that you can participate in together with details of the event and contact details. Please participate and raise money for this worthy cause.
