Equinox 10k

7 down, 3 to go!

We did the Equinox 10km this weekend. Once again, the lovely Vicky and Vanessa Swain joined us for this event at Belvoir Castle in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

The route was very scenic with some tough hills to tackle and a lot of competitive runners involved!

Best of all, we got medals!

We now have just 3 challenges remaining and can confirm that Vicky and Vanessa will be joining us for all of them. They will be the Leicester Half Marathon with plenty other Edgar’s Gift runners on 26th October, the Winter Wolf Run on 1st/2nd November and the Santa Run on the 7th December!

Wish us luck for the final hurdle. Please sponsor what you can at uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/edgarsteam

The one where we ran into branches

So The Twilight Run happened this weekend and we had the lovely Vicky and Vanessa Swain joining us!

Now we were all under the impression that we were given head torches when we arrived…. No, no, no we were supposed to bring them with us!

Anyway we figured it won’t get that dark, we’re starting at 6.40pm.

Idiots – it was pitch black particularly in the forests!

We were running into branches, falling over, scraping our knees, injuring our ankles, legs, arms, fingers, toes and having the best time!

It was so much fun getting muddy, climbing over fences, walls, doing the monkey bars, carry tyres, running through fields forests slithering like snakes through tunnels and face first in mud. Wading through lakes, streams and bogs, balancing on beams, climbing over hay bales. It was fab!

Thanks so much for joining us Vick and Ness and thank you for your help increasing donations and sponsors.

This is now challenge 6 of 10 completed! If you are able to sponsor us that would be greatly appreciated, please visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/edgarsteam
