Thank you for the fantastic response so far. A few people were asking if they could come along and watch their child running so we have posted a timetable of when each class will aproximately be running.

If there any any sponsorship cards that haven’t been returned yet, they will still be accepted and entered in the draw tomorrow. Hopefully the weather will be a little nicer in the morning.
