Held this year under step 3 Covid-19 restrictions. The race was in aid of Cancer research UK and also in support of OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality) Scouts, Guides and Junior Sports Clubs. The run is dedicated to local fundraiser Gareth Dunn who sadly passed away from cancer in 2018 aged just 27 after raising £100,000 for Cancer Research. Lone Eccleshill Road Runner Charlotte Jackson Ran a cracking time of sub 53 minutes. A flat, scenic, multi-terrain course containing one grass hill half way round the route. Starting at the Cookridge Village Scout Hall on Pinfold Lane, the run goes down the Lane and around Paul’s Pond in an anti-clockwise direction. The route then takes you into Golden Acre Park, following the path in an anti-clockwise direction and passes the nature reserve on your right. The route continues on this path and then moves onto the grassed area and up the hill towards the Arthington Road car park. More trail path and then through the woods. Complete a loop of the main path, before a clockwise circuit of the lake. It is then a case of retracing the route back to the finish at the Scout Hall. Charlotte’s official time 52:56. Nice running, well done!
