BUPA Great South Run followup

The BUPA Great South Run went very well for the Get Kids Going! team. The team arrived a day early to Portsmouth and stayed overnight in order to prepare and give last minute advice. Early Sunday October 26, the team headed to the race course to set up. They were eager to greet all the Get Kids Going! runners. Around 8 am, excited runners began showing up with their families, chatting and laughing. We were delighted to see such a turnout of runners.

The race began at 10:30am. Runners got to enjoy a beautiful run through the Southsea docks. David Fallows was the first male Get Kids Going! team member to cross the finish line and Gayle Sissons was the first female Get Kids Going! team member to cross the finish line. Over the next few hours, The Get Kids Going! team welcomed back all of our runners to the charity table for some post run refreshments and free massages! We had a great team of masseuses! And we thank them for their time and energy! We applaud all of the Get Kids Going! team members that came out to run! And we hope to see you next year!
