First Birthday Celebrations.

What a Carry On!


And what a Carry On is was, 215 people walked or ran our course this week. A big thank you to you all for making it fun! We really can't believe how quickly the year has gone by. We've mainly come through it unscathed, a few hiccups along the way but all totally overruled by the warmth of your support and the energy of all the runners and volunteers. Thank you for the cards, cake and the bottle of fizz, the volunteers loved your kind words of appreciation. A nod to all our sponsors and a cheeky warm up to highlight National Alzheimers Day, No flinging bikinis thankfully!

We really hope you enjoyed the day, we look forward to our 2nd year being as successful as our first. Keep on running!

Much love


Kerry and the team.
