Fun Run Roundup

Eighty-four competitors, including twenty-five children, took part in the twelfth annual Long Wittenham Fun Run on Sunday (18th), raising money for a variety of village causes.

Euan Lewis, aged just 14 from Didcot, won the race and set a new course record for Under 18 boys, in a time of 17mins 45secs, breaking the previous course record which had stood for six years.

There were thirty-eight volunteers around the course, behind the scenes, at the start and finish, and other teams of helpers on the barbecue and cake stalls.

After the race there was a barbecue in the garden of The Plough Inn, and awards were presented by event organisers Tom and Prew Bowtell, to whom the village owes special thanks for all their work.

Tom and Prew thanked The Plough for the use of its garden and for providing gazebos, electricity, urns and support.  And there was also thanks to the Sylva Wood Centre for the use of its car park, and Earth Trust for the use of Neptune Wood and for allowing access to the Meadow when the sheep were still grazing.

Finances are still being analysed, but it is believed that over £500 has been raised for the primary school, pre-school, Earth Trust, Sylva Foundation and other village causes.
