Sunday the 20th saw the country unite to raise money for the sport relief charity. Stuart Lord organised a mile run to happen in Okehampton Simmons park.
In the morning Ross, Jake, Spike, Penny, Connor, Jennifer and Teshi the dog met at the Pavilions, we had drink with Jan Goffy the Deputy Mayor and went upstairs to register. We all paid seven pounds to enter the race, and received our personal numbers which we had to wear for the race start.
Lynn started us off with a fun warm up, masses of people turned up to the event. Then we were off! The runners took off like lightning whilst the walkers were slow pokes! Everyone had to choose to do one, three or six miles; all the epic gang did one mile except Penny, Jennifer and Teshi who decided to do three miles - how lazy were the rest of the epic gang!
Vicky cheekily told Jennifer after the race that she was going to do the three but chickened out because she was too fast ;-). Connor ran all the way around the park.
When we had all finished we received medals for our running efforts. Ross said he enjoyed walking round and seeing the drone filming all of the runners was really cool.
What a fantastic community effort well done to everyone who took part!
