Spring Run 2023

Raising money with every step

A huge thank you from all the team at Prospect Hospice to everyone who participated, fundraised and volunteered to make our Spring Run 2023 at Stanton Country Park a great success.

Well done to the 150 runners who braved the mud and stormed around the course on what turned out to be a lovely spring morning.

We saw some excellent running with huge efforts in every distance, the 2.5k fun run and the 5k and 10k run which was chip timed for the first time this year by DB Max. Congratulations to our four winners of the 10k, Yi Yang and Anna Hicks for being our first male and female and to Andrew Haley and Maddy Ford for coming first in the veteran category.

Thank you to our teams who created some excellent fundraising competition between you raising thousands of pounds towards our total, well done and thanks to Everyday Fitness Gym, BD Medical, Alan Hawkins Estate Agents and Imagine Cruising to name a few.

The event has raised a much needed £15,200 so far and counting to help Prospect Hospice deliver outstanding end of life care for our local community. It’s not too late to sponsor a runner or you can donate via our website. Thank you to all of you who got behind your friends, family and colleagues and gave generously towards their sponsorship.

Our head chef Carl served a variety of food and drinks contributing to this total and helped keep hungry runners and supporters happy and warm throughout the morning.

Thank you to all our volunteers as we could not do these events without you. Thank you for getting up early and giving your time to marshal, register participants, put up signs, hand out water or serve food and drinks and in some cases all of the above! We are extremely grateful for your ongoing support for Prospect Hospice.

Thank you to Rapid Hire in Wootton Bassett for kindly donating our generators for the event and thank you to Don Rogers Sports shop in Swindon for donating the gorgeous winning trophies.

Stand by for a final fundraising total in the coming weeks.

Huge thanks again for all your support for the long awaited return of the Prospect Hospice Spring Run.
