Best of Suffolk’s Sport Relief Mile!

Best of Suffolk team run 3 miles and raise over £1000!

There are some sore legs and funny walks in the Best of Suffolk office this Monday. The reason behind this…..the Sport Relief 3 mile run which took place in Aldeburgh and Thorpeness on Sunday 25 March 2012.

The Best of Suffolk’s fabulous four, Naomi, Claire, Simon and Sam arrived to a cold and misty morning in Thorpeness…not quite the conditions they had hoped for but nonetheless they remained in high spirits and refused to be deterred! Around 100 people took part in the race which started and finished at the Thorpeness Country Club and involved a run along the shingle beach, across the marshes and footpath, down the old railway track and back through the golf course….much to the amusement of the golfers!

Despite a few unplanned detours, resulting in some team members running over 4 miles, the team finished in good time and between them raised £547.00.  Best of Suffolk pledged to match the money raised by the individual team members meaning the final total raised for Sport Relief is £1094!

Thank you to everyone who donated and a big WELL DONE to team Best of Suffolk!
