Event Summery

It was a beautiful day, with the sun shining brightly in the sky and a cool breeze blowing. The runners gathered at the start point ready to tackle a 5 mile course that would take them through a lovely view of the sea front. As they set off, the runners quickly fell into a comfortable pace, their feet pounding the pavement in perfect sync. The atmosphere was electric, with each runner pushing themselves to their limits while also enjoying the company of others.

After the race, the runners celebrated their achievement with some well-deserved refreshments and a chat, exchanging stories and experiences from the run. Despite the fatigue, everyone was in good spirits, buoyed by the sense of camaraderie and accomplishment.

It was great supporting the event this year, and good to see the Ford Transit Connect put to good use.

A massive welldone to all who took part, we cant wait for next year!
