Dunky 22 race report and results

The Show Must Go On That the Dunky would go ahead wasn’t in question (unlike some events in a different council area!). What state we would be in on the day of the race was dubious.

Happy Birthday Dunky

Happy Birthday Dunky

A success. We’re definitely calling the Dunky just that. With £333 raised for the Woodland Trust, and 30 new trees planted with Trees For Life, I am sure you will all agree too. We had entries from as far apart as Canada to Edinburgh, and Inverness to Jersey! From ages 9 to 94, and all the age categories in between, a total of 80 entries. A full range of conditions were undertaken by finishers. Battered […]
