On Friday 13th March we joined Scooby-Doo and did our bit for Sport Relief. Well done to all those who put themselves up for the challenge, you smashed it!
The lead up
We were hopeful for a pleasant afternoon for the Sport Relief Fun Run and we were grateful for receiving exactly that! At around 4:45pm, Bramcote Hills Park saw approximately 100 participants arrive in an array of outfits registering to complete the 3k Fun Run with their families, friends and work colleagues. L Leisure were delighted with the supportive response we received from the local community with many families, local groups and even our local police force joining in on the occasion.
Marshalls in place and safety briefing complete. At 5:15pm we had a group countdown 3, 2, 1, gooooo… off they went off to the beat of a workout mix. Starting in the centre of the park field, they headed up and around the children’s play park to join the path that follows the perimeter of the park. Following the second lap, a great spread out of participants continuously made it down the home straight to cross the finish line to be accompanied by Scooby-Doo, cheers from the supporters and awarded a colourful medal around their necks.
