On Sunday I joined 468 keen runners and walkers taking part in the 30th Lingfield Marathon fun run. It was hugely encouraging to see so many people supporting this excellent cause despite of the rain, and I thoroughly enjoyed walking the 6 mile course. Other events on the day were the 10 Mile Fun Run and the 6 Mile Fun Run, both of which recorded some extremely fast times by runners (and somewhat quicker than the 2 hours 41 seconds it took for me to cross the finish line!). All of the courses started and finished at NCYPE in Lingfield. My thanks to the Committee for organising the event. As yet the amount raised is unknown but a major contribution will be made to the Lingfield Marathon Bus, with hopes to buy a new bus later this year.
