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 ?
