On Sunday 7th August, after months of training, fundraising and fretting, Team brightfive took on the York 10k.  

It was a bright and blustery day as thousands of new and seasoned runners assembled at York Knavesmire. Simon and I enjoyed a beautiful route around the centre of York, cheered on by hundreds of enthusiastic spectators.

We were absolutely chuffed to have completed the course in 1 hour 6 minutes (my personal best!). We ran for our chosen charity, York Mind, and we're so pleased to have raised £430 to help people suffering from mental ill health in York.

We’d like to thank Holly Pollard and all the York Mind running team for their support and camaraderie, and our 27 fantastic sponsors for their generous contributions. Special mentions must be awarded to our wonderful cheerleading squad; Rachael, Lucy, Ian, Katie, Matilda, Thomas, Alice, Conor, Liz and Sue.

If you'd like to get involved, it's not too late to sponsor us, just head over to our JustGiving page.
