Brigg 10k poppy race – Military Challenge – 27 October 2019
Darren wrote “Well today was simply amazing. No idea what to expect being the first time id done anything like this. We had Scots pipers pipe us through the town centre past thousands of spectators and wellwishers. This was followed by a 2 minute silence. Then we were off at 9.30 15 minutes before the main race. All the way round the town centre out through the country through cadney the support was amazing. Coupled with it being an out and back the support for us military lads was simply astounding never have I been subjected to so many pats on the back handshakes and high fives from other race competitor’s. Not to proud to say I shed a tear or two on the way round simply because of the overwhelming amount of support. A huge thanks to my big bro Dave Moores who was in beast mode today and he kept me honest to the last second. Proud to have run with you mate it was quite something. Also a big shout out to Tracie WhymanAngie ClarkeDerek Steven Clarke and Becky HB who came out to see us round, although we caught them out as we were quicker than they expected and they missed us finishing 😂😂 never the less the support as ever was much appreciated xxx xxx The nice thing we were the only DAC runners taking part and to hear your name getting shouted as we ran past in our DAC vests was epic. My official time was 1.22.25 1st in my age category, 15th man out of 30 who ran and 17th out of 38 overall. To say I’m pleased isn’t even close 😎 Will get totalled up later but I think between us we raised just over £500 so thank you to all who donated I hope we’ve done you proud Much love xxxxxxx
