LIONS RUN WATER STATION AT WYVERN 10K


1000 runners were delighted to to see our water station at the 4 kilometer mark on the baking hot day (9th July). Trying to supply so many in a short period of time proved challenging. It required at least 2 people to be continually open water bottles and pouring the contents into cups.

Just as we thought that the rush was over the runners started to return on the other side of the road. Slight chaos returned as we provided drinks to runners in different directions.

Half an hour later it was all over, bare the clearing up. Should have taken a picture of the road covered in 1000 plastic cups.

Well done Liz, Dave, Pete W, Cliff and Chris.            Roll on 2018??

Reports on the past year's achievements were delivered for each of the committees, the social report being delivered as a poem. Maybe this should be a trend for future years!!!
