It’s hard to believe that two months have passed since the Finish Line Frolic on 31st July. It’s taken that time for us to finalise the various financial aspects of the event.
Last weekend our chairman Keith Passingham paid a visit to another Hare & Tortoise Running charity event “Mayor & Tortoise-Mayor’s Big Run” and was pleased to be advised of the final Frolic donation, a fantastic £3,854, which includes the sponsorship funds from My Race Kit, Southbourne Physiotherapy, and Malcolm Keys Consulting.
We would like to thank Bev and Pete at Hare & Tortoise https://www.hareandtortoiserunning.co.uk once again for their fantastic support and that of our wonderful sponsors and supporters, at the event and through months of preparation.
We were delighted to attract 131 entries, 115 runners on the day, all competing over a lapped approximately 5k route which started at Belchamps Scout Centre (who made us very welcome) and passed though Gusted & Hockley Woods.
Runners completed as many laps as they wished in the 6-hour time limit, with Mike Woodward of Pitsea RC and Jemma Lee of Leigh on Sea Striders, coming out on top.
