Santa Dash Success

Our super athletes put on their Santa Attire on Saturday Morning to take on the 1 mile Santa Dash around Wyre Forest. The course was mostly off-road along the Gruffalo Trail with a sharp hill towards the finish to test the legs!!! All of the children were presented with certificates at the finish and chose a present from the finisher’s table. The times were super impressive with everyone finishing the course in under 10 minutes and more importantly, with a big smile on their face!  Well done all! Our first junior across the line was Dan in a time of 6:13 (wow!), with Maia being the first girl home (with a great sprint finish!). Lewis had the hardest job of the day after arriving late, but managed to put in a super performance! The day also saw a super competitive Dad’s race; although third place was actually a Mum (well done Lenka!), with Steve (Aran & Amaya’s Dad) being pipped to the post by 1 second to Dave (Maya’s Dad). Unfortunately there was no winner’s prize for Dave, but we hope that he comes back to defend his title next year! We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the marshals, volunteers and runners for making the morning so much fun. Happy Christmas everyone! We look forward to seeing you in 2015!
