Thanks and Acknowledgements


The Wednesday Special Needs Club wishes to thank our runners and the spectators for once again making the run such a success. This year we received 520 entries; considering there were 8 other runs on the same day we are very grateful that so many runners chose to run our 10K.


A VERY BIG THANK YOU to the many volunteers and friends who helped on the day. We had over 70 volunteers covering the many tasks required throughout the 10k course and in the community centre. So well done everyone!


All the proceeds raised from the run go towards the club’s ‘Sensory Soft Play Resource’. It is managed, maintained and funded by the volunteers of the Wednesday Club.




They were presented with their trophies by one of our sponsors, Derek Holmes (Discount VW Audi Centre (Hoylake)):


Lady Winner: Jayne Joy

 Time- 42:52

Male Winner: Joseph Boden

 (Wallasey AC) (Age 25)

 Time- 36:05





The winners were presented with their trophies by Derek Holmes (Discount VW Audi Centre, Hoylake). Thanks also for his excellent beetle car display, which helped us advertise the 10k run to everyone driving through Hoylake in the week leading up to run.
