Wednesday Special Needs Club wishes to thank our runners and the spectators for
once again helping make the run such a successful event, both for the WSNC and
year we received 601 entries. Considering that there were 5 other 10k runs on
the same day within 80 miles of Hoylake, this was a fantastic turnout. We are
very pleased that so many runners chose to support us and take part in our 10k.
A big THANK YOU to the
many volunteers and friends who helped on the day.
over 70 volunteers covering the many tasks and posts required throughout the
10k course and in the Community Centre. So
well done everyone! A brilliant team effort.
year we had an extra team of marshals at the 5k turn because of the cocklers
working at Moreton shore. Special thanks go to Colin Birkett (our 10k Safety
Co-ordinator) and the seven extra marshals who came on board to support us a
week before the run, and ensured everything ran smoothly. Thanks Jo, Peter,
Alison, Natalie, Mat, Allie and Rachael.
also to Dave Stevenson (Wirral Ranger) for doing another fantastic job in
making sure the course between the 5k marker and Leasowe Lighthouse carpark was
in great condition for the run. Also for his help and advice this year in
ensuring the runners’ safety at the 5k turn.
previous years, all the proceeds raised from the run go towards the club’s
‘Sensory Soft Play Resource’, which is managed, maintained and funded by the
volunteers of the Wednesday Club.
