Burgess Sports was extremely proud to have organised and run the first 10km run in Burgess Park last week.
About 40 runners entered the run and helped to raise money for our charity. In the morning as we started to set up the course we were greeted with bright sunshine. Summer is finally here we thought. Thirty minutes later we were scrambling for umbrellas and raincoats. The skies opened and dropped a monsoon of rain throughout the morning!
Nevertheless, spirits were high, strong coffees were consumed at the Clubhouse Cafe, and everyone was smiling, more or less, as they crossed the start line. Our chip timing tech held up and everyone could see their finish time online as they finished. Our first finisher taking about 36 minutes and the last about 80 minutes.
A massive thank you to all the volunteers who braved the rain and help to marshal the runners.
