Great turnout makes the Fun Run and Walk a big success
Ideal conditions helped make the thirty-second annual event a success with one thousand and ninety-nine [1,099] entrants turning out for the run or walk. This was the highest in recent history and should ensure that the fundraising target of £15,000 set by the organisers, the Rotary Club of Cambridge Sawston, will be reached. This would take the cumulative total donated to local good causes close to an amazing £440,000.
The overall winner for the second successive year was Sean McKenna of Duxford in a time of 24.50 and the winning lady was Sophie Courtois of Great Abington, results for all catagories can be found on the Results page here
The biggest winners will be the charities and local groups when the funds are donated to them in July. The major beneficiary will be the Arthur Rank Hospice.
Chairman of the organising committee Rotarian Ian Chamberlain said ‘I’d like to thank everyone who helped in the event; those who marshalled and provided water as well as The Cambridge Building Society and other sponsors and businesses and those in Sawston who contributed in some way. It’s so good to see everyone enjoying themselves.
The Rotary club is indebted to the event sponsor The Cambridge Building Society, Jon Culpin and Sawston Village College and sponsors Adams Harrison, Bradshaws, Budgens, Excell, Gibbs Denley Insurance, McDonalds, Morgan Sindall, the Ridgeon Group, Scotsdales, Vindis Sawston and the Sawston Parish Council as without them the event could not be held.
