Fun Run and Easter Egg Hunt


The Fun Run and Easter Egg Hunt was held on Sunday, April 14th at the Ship Inn at Sewerby, just a mile or so up the coast from Bridlington. There was a small but "Quality" turnout, most participants being members of local running clubs and their children.

I'd spent the previous evening assembling 'Goodie Bags' for all participants and hoping that I would have enough to go round. My local Tesco store provided a plethora of Cadbury's Creme Eggs, while our newly re-opened Co-op gave us several cartons of juice boxes and carrier bags. Thank you to both of those businesses... for supporting us on the day, and for supporting the local community EVERY day!

The day got off to a shaky start while we were setting up, when the heavens opened to release a vicious hail storm. But that soon passed and by 'race time' the sun was coming out to welcome participants.

The morning was chilly and windy...

 but everyone had a great time...

The winner of the Fun Run was Mia Swaine in an unofficial time of 'Super Fast' while the prize for "Outstanding Volunteer" was unanimously awarded to Kaelyn Mainprize. I want to give a special thank you to both these young ladies for their truly amazing efforts!

Afterwards, the Ship Inn provided coffee and cake for everyone...

...and we all enjoyed a natter...

Dee always enjoys cake...                                 ...and Bim travelled all the way from Thailand!

Jennifer kept me going when I was flagging...                                ...and Paul took loads of photos!

And the Macular Society benefited to the tune of £100.00... THANK YOU ALL!  

A cure for macular generation is growing closer but more money is urgently needed to fund further research...

Details have now been worked out for our Fun Run and Easter Egg Hunt. Fellow Bridlington Road Runners member Charlie Kilburn and his wife Lou have generously offered to promote this event at their pub, the Ship Inn  at Sewerby.

The pub is situated in a beautiful location close to the cliff top in this village just to the north of Bridlington. It is a dog friendly, award-winning pub that serves excellent food with daily specials and a superb Sunday Brunch. They also have a talking parrot!

Details are shown on the flyer below...


So please mark your calendar for April 14th, bring the kids, and tell all your friends and neighbours. The Ship Inn will be providing FREE CAKE and coffee afterwards for all participants, but if you plan on staying on for Sunday Brunch please book in advance because it is VERY popular!

To enter the Fun Run, stop in at the Ship Inn to pay cash, or you can do it online via my JustGiving page.
