On Sunday the 7th May, myself and the girls travelled to bracknell to cheer on the Afton team that took part in the half marathon. The weather at the start of the race was drizzley followed by an overcast morning with a chilly breeze, the perfect weather for running. The sun came out after majority of the participants had crossed the finish line.
The names of the team members were Lee Carter, Jo Davies, Sarah Carter, Nabil Akhtar, Joe Corless and Adam Banks, they are all colleagues of Andy from work.
The team did ever so well, most of them beating their personal best, Lee did it in 1hour 35, an amazing achievement. Their families came to cheer them on and you could see how proud they were of their runners, it was written all over their faces.
The team raised an amazing total of £2181.50 for Batten Fighters Forever and we are very grateful for their support.
