Chirnside Chaser’s held a 24hr relay run over the weekend to raise money for Eve oultion who raise money for Ward 7 of Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital.
The event started at 2pm on Saturday round 10 mile route with a support bus following the runners at all times and many helper’s at Allanton Village Hall making cups of tea and bacon rolls to keep everyone fuelled and hydrated.
Runners from the club and other club’s aged from 9yrs to 60 yrs ran brilliantly through out the 24 hrs and credit must go to the people who ran the graveyard shift running through the night and the early hours of Sunday morning.
The event has raised £2600 for Eve oultion which is a magnificent amount .
Credit must go to Leeann and Stevie Ross who organised the event that went seamlessly and to Roberstons of Duns who supplied the buses for support of the runners, also to Border Eggs who sponsored the event providing T -Shirts for all the runners and helpers and The Allanton Inn for the food and refreshments after the event.
The event was a great success and a credit to the club.
