Eden Project Half Marathon
RSPCA Chief Inspector Richard Abbott and Jo Inspector in the SW group.

RSPCA Chief Inspector Richard Abbott is a keen runner, and has entered the Eden Project Half Marathon on Sunday 15th October. He has been joined by Jo, who is an inspector in the SW group. The run starts at 10am at the Eden Project and ends back there.

Richard is the RSPCA’s National Rope Rescue Coordinator in England & Wales and is also the Regional Firearms Officer. He’s co-ordinated the types of rescues that involve abseiling down a cliff face to pick up stranded sheep or cows that go over the edge.


Richard and Jo are running for RSPCA Cornwall Branch and hope to raise at least £200 through sponsorship. If you care to go along the route and cheer them on they will be pleased to see you, and if anyone wants to sponsor them, Richard has set up a donation page on TotalGiving, which you can see HERE

Here is a map of the half marathon route.
