Hoburne 5 mile Road race (Sun 1st October 2017)


A big thank you to all the runners, helpers and sponsors that made such a successful Hoburne 5 2017.


The race raised £2900 for good causes:

£2700 to Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund (290340)*

£200 to Cancer Research UK


* boosted by contributions from: BAE Systems £750, the Roman Group £500 and Brewers Decorating £200


We also had some amazing sponsorship contributions which were used for positional prizes, spot prizes and goody bags.


Our beachball medaI has had mixed reviews, but please don't compare it with medals from races with much higher entry fees.


The new course was probably much the same for runners, but achieved our aims, as it was easier for us to manage, less awkward for road users on the course and easier for everyone to leave Hoburne Park. Alas, there was no opportunity to make it flatter.
