2017 Santa Fun Run
Nine years on and again blessed with dry weather—albeit cold but bringing a smile to peoples’ faces, both runners and spectators.
We achieved around 660 Santa’s taking part slightly fewer than last year however those who took part enjoyed the day.
A total of monies raised has not yet been finalised but the turnout bodes well for all the charities who supported the event.
This will be reported in the January COG.
Everyone who attended said they enjoyed our Annual event. Who would have thought that it has been running for 9 years and still we are being asked “you will be running it again next year—won’t you?”
Again it was nice to see so many families with young children taking part. As was said last year by our overseas guests how impressed they were by the community spirit generated running such an event.
Special thanks to our dedicated marshalls and car park attendants including the support of the Red Cross as this event could not have taken place without them. Thanks must also go to the Pathway Community Church for providing welcome refreshments to all those who completed the run and to Lutterworth Town Band that provided a rousing welcome back with Christmas carols at the finish line.
May both local Rotary Clubs say a big thanks to you all for making it such a successful day not forgetting all our sponsors who regularly support us.
Finally our committee from both clubs would like to thank John Turner (our organiser) for the hours he has spent it making it run so smoothly.
Thank you John.
