Come and applaud him on his final run.

aturday's visit of the Shrews will see Robbie complete his runs with one last big effort to reach the Weston Homes Community Stadium. Robbie will be joined by a number of other runners for that last run and we have meeting points at 5, 3 and 1 mile to go for anyone who would wish to join in (please contact us onmedia@colchesterunited.netif so!).You can donate to Robbie's incredible efforts by visiting

Adam and Robbie shared some tips as, although Robbie's running is completed v Shrewsbury, he'll have two days rest before setting off to Carlisle by bike for the final away game of the campaign.

His arrival will then be followed by a host of Family Day activities around the stadium - so there's plenty of reason to get here early and see off the season in style!

He is due to arrive at the stadium at around 1pm on Saturday, so we would ask fans to get here at around that time to acclaim his efforts ahead of the last home game of the campaign.
