Fun Run 2012

 run1 run 2What fantastic weather once again for our annual Fun Run. There were so many runners in the 1km, 5km and a few brave souls running in the 10km races. It was great to see everyone smiling and enjoying themselves before during and yes even after the races.

The 1km was very quick as usual with first person back in just after 5 minutes. This year the race was won by Thomas Church with Joe Williams hot on his heels as our first school child home.

After the count down the runners were off again down towards Church Road and onto Marsh Lane. It took about 25 minutes for the first person to come back round the corner and up towards school. The child runner home was Oliver Millard and the first school pupil home was Sam Williams (completing a double for the Williams boys). Then came a raft of children all racing to the finish line to get their highest placing.

Well done to everyone who took part. There were well deserved ice creams and drinks after the finish and a well earned rest. Thank you so much to the PA and especially Dan and Shonagh and Nicola for organising the event once again this year, and to all the PA for their continued efforts. The race raised £720 for the PA fund raising fund.
