Sun Run

5th - 7th July 2002

What is the Sun Run some of you may be saying? Well itís a 24-mile race against the sun. You start on the Malvern Hills at sun down and try to get to the Cotswolds (Cheltenham) by sunrise. Preceding this there is a day of activities including circus skills, comedians, bands, birds of prey demonstration and inflatable fun!!

This year we had 8 people from FOW taking part and had two teams with times for the 24 miles of 6hrs 40mins and also 7hrs 45mins. We also had four Explorer scouts from my scout troop and this was the first time they had walked this distance, but all managed a time of 7hrs 45mins. A fun time was had by all even though we only got a few hours sleep on the Saturday night... So how fast can we go next year?
