A HUGE THANKYOU to everybody who came along to the 8th Methlick FUNd Run yesterday.


We had another excellent turn out this year, with over 80 runners taking part in the 5k, 10k or children’s run. As ever we had a mixture of runners and walkers, some on their first outing in Methlick, some for years past. With the wet weather earlier in the week we had to amend the usual loop of the cricket pitch, but around 10 o’clock the large snake of runners set off on their way towards Gight. As you can hopefully see from the photos uploaded on Photobucket there were many smiles and the weather was kind and we stayed dry throughout.


As ever once back from the run there was plenty of tea and cake in the Scout Hut for everyone.


Thanks to everyone’s efforts we have raised somewhere in the region of £1,500 which is a truly fantastic achievement for our wee run.


A list of the first 10 runners back in both the 5k and 10k runs is attached. Apologies if names and times don’t quite match yours. Rather than printing out certificates, we decided this year to send blank certificates electronically, to help save ink and paper.


I hope to see many of you again next April for our 9th event.


Best wishes,
