More than 250 runners turned out at this year’s Weybridge Running Festival which was held in Whiteley Village, last Staurday 1st June.
People from all walks of life – sportsmen, amateurs and fun-runners alike, joined forces to raise money for Whiteley Village, which provides almshouse accommodation to older people of limited means.
The Festival features 3 main races:
The 5K was won by Theodore Patel in 19:17:89.
The 10K was won by Paul Rodgers in 35:46.51.
The Alms Race Men’s went to Matthew Rea in 20:00:71 and Women’s to Clair Haslett in 27:41:65
Lodge Brothers were proud to sponsor their very own obstacle in the Alms Race – called the ‘Lodge Leap’ hurdle, which proved a tricky manoeuvre for some!
Richard Exworthy, head of fundraising, said, “The festival was a fantastic success. Hundreds of people came to Whiteley Village and enjoyed the morning, running for charity around the wonderful cottages and acres of beautiful woodland.
“We’re very grateful to all the businesses who supported the event and to everyone who took part.”
