This year, due to the strange situation the planet finds itself in, the RntS 5 Mile Beach Run needed to be handled a little differently.
To allow for social distancing and to adhere to EA rules, the participants set off in groups of no more than 6 runners, based on their speed, at timed intervals. This meant, with the fastest runners heading off first, there would be as little overtaking and grouping as possible.
Following a Saturday of high winds and heavy rain, the RntS God was smiling upon us and delivered a blue sky, sunshine and a bit of a breeze. Recent weather meant parts of the course were muddy and slippery, but the majority was OK (if you can call sand, water and sand dunes OK!).
As with last year, entrants were asked to donate to the Royal British Legion seeing as we’re once again close to remembrance weekend and that the poppy collectors will be far and few between this year.
The total collection amount raised was £183. Great work everyone. 👍
