Tavistock Athletic Club 5k run in memory of Clarissa Nicholls

Article appeared in the Tavistock Times Gazette, Print Edition.

Saturday saw the running of the monthly Tavy 5k race, organised by Tavistock Athletic Club. This was a rather special event as it was dedicated to the memory of Clarissa Nicholls, who was a junior member of the Club from 2015 to 2019.

Sadly, in May of this year, she had a sudden and unexpected cardiac arrest whilst hiking with friends in France. She was just a few days short of her 21st birthday.

Her parents have set up a donations page in memory of Clarissa, supporting the work of the CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) charity. The link to this webpage is https://www.c-r-y.org.uk/clarissa-nicholls/.
