Clanfield Challenge 2017 – thank you for your support

Author: John Hughes

Hello, my name is John Hughes of AdvanceSRM and on behalf of Ken Finlay of Clanfield Joggers and Peter Garrett of Serenity Digital and myself I want to thank you for supporting the Clanfield Challenge 2017. 

We would also like to thank every member of the team, our Event Heroes, who helped make this year's Clanfield Challenge an incredible success. We were supported by generous sponsors, community organisations and untold numbers of helpers who went the extra mile to ensure that the 700 runners, from tiny tots to experienced veterans, had a memorable day. Ken, Peter and I would like to particularly thank Clanfield Online. The website membership, of which we are proud to be part of, provided vital financial and practical support.

Over £4000 has been raised, of which £2000 has been split equally between the Rowans Hospice and PSPA. The remaining monies will be used to support local community projects and ensure that next year's event is bigger and better. The aim of the Challenge is to provide a means to bring the community together, welcome new residents, raise funds for good causes and encourage a healthy lifestyle. We hope you will agree with us that we have achieved all these aims this year. Certainly, the feedback from participants, volunteers, sponsors and yourselves has been overwhelmingly positive and the consensus is that 2017 was the best yet.

We are about to start planning the Clanfield Challenge 2018 and we hope you will continue to offer your help, time and sponsorship for this successful event in our village in the beautiful South Downs.

Thank you for all your support in making the Clanfield Challenge 2017 so enjoyable!
