Big Turnout for Fun Run
Large sum raised for Dukes Meadows benefit as runners go the extra 5 miles
The second Dukes Meadows Fun Run sponsored by the Hogarth Club took place in fine weather. Organisers were delighted with the turn out and over £1000 was raised to help restore the Meadows. The Fulham Brass Band and a bouncy castle for the kids kept spectators entertained.
Top Chiswick Corporate was Barclays Bank who entered four runners and raised £300 in sponsorship.
Damian Clarke was the first man across the line completing the 5 mile run in 29 minutes 58 seconds minutes. Fastest lady was Angela Leach completing in 33 minutes. Both winners took home a Hogarth Club Trophy, bottle of champagne and a month’s complimentary membership of the club.
Local Councillor and BBC man Paul Lynch provided excellent commentary for the event.
Paul Davis Chair of the Friends said “We are tremendously grateful to the Hogarth Club for supporting the event and hope that we can make it an annual one.
