Wirral Seaside Runs Round-up

A huge thanks to Mark and Gordon for their organisation of this year’s Wirral Seaside Run series.  I think it’s fair to say they did a fantastic job, and the steadily increasing numbers of runners week by week was testimony to their hard work.

The presentation evening took place this week and it was great to see so many people there to pick up their prizes.  On top of that, the race organisers were able to make a donation to the Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse of £500, as a thank you for letting the race use their wonderful venue for registrations.

 

£500 was presented to F of LL                          Fiona picks up some fizz on behalf of

Below are some photos from the presentation night.  Over the course of the series Pensby Runners as a club did itself proud. The club fielded 44 runners overall, but also numerous marshals and start and finish volunteers.  Four Pensby Runners picked up category prizes and ten Pensby Runners received Grand Prix prizes.
