Kesgrave: Hundreds enjoy the glorious weather and take part in charity fun run
THERE were celebrations all round at the weekend as hundreds of people turned out for a fun run in support of a town hospice.
The Kesgrave 5K Fun Run, which is in its 5th year, attracted 364 entrants with hundreds more lining the streets to cheer them on.
Jason Berry, of Woodbridge, won this year’s race in a time of 17:50 and he was followed by Roger Stone, of Ipswich, in second place with a time of 18:01.
Twelve-year-old Matthew Snowdon completed the top three with Alice Goodwin being the first lady to complete the race.
So far, the event has helped to raise £1,303 for St Elizabeth Hospice.
Debbie McCallum, landlady at the Kesgrave Bell, where the run started and ended, said: “We had a fantastic turnout and there was a great atmosphere.
“People just lined the streets so it was quite nice – it had a really nice community feel.”
