Cottenham Fun Run 2014

Cottenham Fun Run 2014, on the first bank holiday weekend in May, got off to an early start on the Saturday morning with the arrival at Cottenham Village College of 200 enthusiastic contestants to register. All would be running for a good cause: Sunflowers Care in Cottenham which provides nurse-led care to children from babies to 18 year olds with a variety of complex health needs.

For the main race, 98 adults, 20 college children and 7 primary school children put their names down for the 4mile/7km walk or run through Cottenham. There were 75 juniors to take part in the race around the CVC playing field, starting at 10am. As the event is organised by volunteers, the entrance fees of £5 (over16s) and £3 (under16s) went to the charitable partner. There were stalls on the college green which also contributed to the sum donated (after costs) of £412.

Runners who came first, second and third were awarded prizes. Children received an engraved medal and an Amazon voucher (from £20 to £10); adults were given an engraved medal, and category winners (men, women, veterans, CVC boys, CVC girls, primary school boys – there were no entrants primary school girls) won a £20 Amazon voucher. Bonus goodies for all winners came from the French twinners de Avrillé who had arrived the night before and would be spending the weekend in the Fen Edge villages.
