AUK 10Km Run - Please Support the KA Team!

Hello Everyone!

It's that time of year again - the AUK 10K run takes place at Dorney Lake, Windsor on Easter Saturday (March 22nd). Once again a group of volunteers from the Kick-Asthma Children's Holidays are getting together to variously run the 10k, the new 2x5K relay, and support loudly from the sidelines (as well as promoting the hols).

We - and especially I - would be very, very, grovellingly grateful if you could spare a few pennies to support our cause. What cause? This one *points upwards* - Asthma UK. We'd love to beat last year's achievement of £2,500 (which was a bit astounding). Our online fundraising site is justgiving.com/kickasthma - or you can PM me for details if you wish to sponsor us by cheque.

Last year I wanted to run it in less than an hour - and I managed 1hr 0mins 6s - gutted! Really want to beat that this year...watch this space. A number of the team aside from myself are also asthmatic, so your support would mean a lot to them, too.

Right, I'll cut the waffle now.

Thanks for reading,

Cathy

PS-did I notice a new target?

Reply

Yes indeed. We reached the £1,500 target....maybe yesterday? The day before? So we've upped it.

Please pray for good weather on Saturday, or at least for it to be not cold and not too windy, else I'm not going to manage to rake in the extra promised cash for doing it under an hour :(

Many thanks for the good wishes.

Weather was unfortunatley absolutely horrendous - freezing cold, driving wind, rain, hail, sleet and snow.

Sadly didn't make it round under and hour but considering conditions I was very happy with a time of 1hr 1min 37s (the fastest runners reckon the conditions took about 5mins off their times).

Sean made it round the 2k but had a text from Julie to say he's struggling a bit now, all credit to him for making it though.

Off to get some food in now and to continue warming up.
