Mothering Sunday saw the second West Worthing 5k & 10k run for the Thrive Federation. The run was a fantastic success with over 500 competitors and the rain held off to allow lots of supporters to come and cheer the runners on making a great atmosphere for everyone.
The schools would like to give a huge thank you to Tesco at West Durrington for supplying the water for all the runners. We would particularly like to thank Myra Jasper, Tesco’s Community Champion, for organising the water, contacting local councillors, Lionel Harman and Steve Wills, to come and volunteer by marshalling and inviting Bob Smytherman our local town crier and Sean McDonald, Worthing and local councillor, to come and support the event and hand out medals. On top of all this she also ran the 10k!
Another huge thank you to Ridge Crest Cleaning Limited for their generous sponsorship of the registration marquee and donation buckets.
Thank you also to all the school staff and governors who gave up their free time on Mother’s Day to don their running shoes, marshal, hand out water, collect donations, bake and sell cakes, all without whom the event would not have been a success.
