Alton Water 2K Fun Run
By Hadleigh Hares, May 12 2015 08:39PM
On 10th May three young Hares raced the very popular 2k fun run, which takes place alongside the 10k race. Ella Bodsworth aged 9, Elizabeth Rigby aged 6 and first timer, Abigail Rigby aged 4, arrived raring to go at 9:15.
After registration the trio joined the masses for the group warm up. The mass warm up was taken by non other than the local children's entertainer Kit Kat. After lots of fist pumping, Mo arms and Bolt impressions the runners were ready to go!
True to form Ella Bodsworth headed to he front to get a great start, followed not too far behind by Elizabeth, and Abigail hung back with Mummy. The start gun was fired and the trio were off! The conditions were perfect and Ella was the first of the Hares in about 11 mins, followed not too far behind by Elizabeth in 13 mins, with Abigail bringing up the rear in 16 mins. Abigail managed to keep a good steady pace for the first half, considering this was her first race she did really well! Well done to all three on a great race which was rewarded by some lovely sunshine and burgers afterwards!
