All 300+ starters completed the course and although we had the First Aid team to hand I am pleased to report that their services were not needed. By 12.15 all runners were over the finish line along with Gary Sibley who acted as our Sweeper for this event. Goody bags and shirts were gratefully received, the need for a dry T-shirt being the most urgent with the majority of runners having contended with a very heavy shower of rain in their final stage of the Race.
Finally Presentations were made in the Discovery Centre by our Chairman, Tony Gordon, and once again the Braintree 5 Race was over for another year. With our thanks as usual to Countryside Properties for giving us permission to start and finish on their Skyline 120 Business Park, the staff at the Discovery Centre for their co-operation in the organising of this event, and our members and their friends, family and colleagues who turn out in all weathers to marshall, support and organise this event.
We are delighted to be supporting the following charities:
BRA The Breast Reconstruction Awareness Charity. No 1048542.
Parc Essex. Play & Resource Centre. Charity No. 1065854.
Our event raised £1298.63 to split between the two charities.
Our Race Director, Paul Miller.
We are privileged to have a number of generous sponsors, without whom we would not be able to put on this race.
Thank you to Econpprint for all your help and Asics Freeport for kindly donating the goody bags.
Also we are grateful to Braintree District Council for their support with this event.
