At 9.30am on Sunday 8th September, no less than 1500 brave runners set off to complete the 10 kilometre course around Stratford. The event is organised by Tempo Events with sponsorship from Stratford-based solicitors Lodders. This year, for the first time, Time Out were the charity partner and we provided 25 marshals to guide runners around the course and cheer them on. At the finish, a large crowd of spectators were waiting expectantly and the atmosphere was truly amazing. The weather was perfect - sunny but cool, warming up as the morning went on, and the event was a huge success. There were some fast times, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves - runners and spectators alike, and a number of runners attracted sponsorship on behalf of the charity, which is fantastic! Congratulations to all the runners - a fantastic achievement!
We are immensely grateful to Boo Lewis for the generous donations totalling £650 in memory of her late father, who very sadly died this year, and offer our heartfelt sympathy to Boo and her family for their loss
