Three groups get Thurlby 10k Road Race funds

Have your say

Money raised at the Thurlby 10k Road Race and Fun Run this year has been donated to three village groups.

At a presentation evening, the race organising committee distribute cheques to the value of £2,120 raised at the annual event held in July.

The Thurlby Home and School Association and the Scout Group were each given £1,000.

The Lawrance Park Community Association got £120.

All three groups have been involved with the race providing water stations, marshalling and serving refreshments.

The races which start and finish at Lawrance Park in the centre of the village had 341 runners.

Race director Paul Biddlecombe said: “The fun run had the third highest number of entrants. The 10k course, which takes runners out of Thurlby and through neighbouring villages, is a firm favourite every year.”
