The day of the Fun Run arrived and for a pleasant change the weather was perfect and as a result a grand total of 160 runners duly turned up to register for the 7th Wickwar Fun Run.
Although individual times were not recorded this year, the first past the post was Harry Morgan who completed the course in an amazing 20 minutes and 55 seconds.
Another change this year was to split the runners into 9 separate categories. The fastest runner across the line from each category then collected a trophy in addition to their participation medal.
Congratulations and well done to:
Infants – Annan Palmer
Juniors – Lucas Lingham
Upper Juniors – David Holt
Under 16 Male – George Bonnick
Under 16 Female – Sophie Barrant
17-34 Male – Harry Morgan
17-34 Female – Iris McNeill
34+ Male – Chris Martin
34+ Female – Angela Martin
Everyone who completed the run and passed the finishing line received a winner’s medal and congratulations must go to you all, you should be REALLY proud of yourselves (even the dog that was spotted wearing a winner’s medal)!!
Finally a HUGE thank you must go to our behind the scenes team – Sarah Haines who due to being poorly couldn’t make it down with us on the day, Germaine Bath and David Haines for stepping into Sarah’s shoes at the last minute and to all our set up helpers, Marshalls, Refreshment Ladies and Registration Ladies, without whom this type of event could not happen.
