Leeds Castle – 10K Race in aid of Cancer Research
After the success of Park Lane’s previous 5K “Race for Life” the company wanted to take up another running challenge. They found out that Cancer Research were holding a series of running events across the country and entered the Leeds Castle one.
The team, consisting of Jackie and Neil Thompson, Sue McGreevy, Ange Garner, Scott Baker, Russell and Sharon Beswick, were at various stages of fitness and a 10k race represented a huge challenge for them. In the morning of the run the weather was lovely. The first 5K was steep and tortuous but every member of the team coped brilliantly. The course was wonderful, the views magnificent, the atmosphere electric. Scott finished first in 57 minutes. A great effort, a great day and a total of £2000 raised!
