Well, what a brilliant Whitstable 10K turn-out we had today!  I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all our Harriers marshals and their family/friends that volunteered.  Also to Gerry Reilly and Roy Gooderson on the microphones.

There were many positive comments about the marshalling, t-shirts and medals.  Runners loved the course and the positive and up-beat atmosphere everyone involved produced for the event.

In addition, I just want to say on behalf of the Harriers, a big thank you to our two sponsors Furley Page and Northover Cars – their sponsorship is very gratefully received to assist the club with its sustainability.  There are some photos of the sponsored attire and medals, as well as some of the Furley Page sponsors running at the event.  We also had some of the sponsors marshal today – even providing jelly babies and wine gums at the finish line for our runners! 

Team Buckley Physio were also present giving out free massages to the runners – the three physios each received a box of chocolates at the start; safe to say they had devoured them by the end of the day!

Sporting Events UK were well organised and assisted the event to run smoothly which we were also grateful for. 

Finally, a special thank you to both Andy Farrant and Steve Clark for all their help in the lead up to the event and the background work completed to get us to such a ‘buzzing’ event today…PBs were definitely “the catch of the day”!
