10k run at Milton Keynes Festival of Running photo

I have decided to run my first ever 10k on March 9th at the MK Festival of Running and want to use the opportunity to raise some money for Workers Fund Iran. I've never run as far as 10k before, and having had a very lazy exercise free winter it is going to be a challenge, but I'm sure I can do it.

Workers Fund Iran do excellent work raising practical solidarity with working class people (employed and unemployed) in Iran. Iranians suffer both from the effects of US-led sanctions and the neoliberal and repressive policies of their own regime. These factors combined with the global economic crisis have resulted in intolerable conditions for the mass of people in Iran. Inflation has skyrocketed, unemployment is rife, and even amongst those who have jobs many have to go months without receiving wages. Worker activists who seek to organise to improve their conditions are regularly arrested, imprisoned, tortured and even killed. They deserve our solidarity. Please give generously to Workers Fund Iran.
