Despite uncertain weather - including a hailstorm just prior to the start - the Sessay Sports Relief run was a great success, and £400 was raised for charity.  Around 100 runners (plus half a dozen dogs !) took part, with a roughly equal split between the three distances (6 miles, 3 miles and 1 mile).  

 

The youngest finisher was four years old, and the oldest (Brian Flintoff) 86.  Ollie Dale even completed the course on a unicycle !  Well done to all who took part, and to Chris Till and everyone else involved in organising the event.

The weather for the actual run was fine - as you can see.  Some runners were obviously worried
about the effects of heat exhaustion - or has intensive training for the cricket season already started ?

INFORMATION

What is RSS?

RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is the technical term for a newsfeed.

If you are an "Information Junkie", then RSS is perfect for you. RSS is about getting live web feeds directly to your computer. RSS takes the latest headlines from our website, and pushes those headlines down to your computer for quick scanning. It can also visually inform you when a new news article has been published.

Setting up a RSS Newsfeed is simple but not all web-browsers have an RSS reader built in. To know for sure, simply click on the RSS Feed button above. If you get a new page full of code then it's likely you haven't got a Feed Reader installed. If this is the case we recommend you Google search for a RSS feed reader for your chosen web-browser.
