Runners travel from Holland for charity race
9:30am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
Runners from Holland travelled to England to take part in a charity race.
Almost 300 people gathered at the start line of the last ever Discovery Fun Run in Dovercourt.
The run was set up 15 years ago to bring runners from Holland and England together.
Organiser John Gibson said: "We had a good turnout.
"The weather was good. In 15 years we've never had a rainy day.
"I think everyone enjoyed it."
Despite the successful event, which raised money for the cancer charity CLIC Sargant, this is the last time the run will be held.
Mr Gibson said: “It was hard to say goodbye to it.
“It was a big part of my life but it is a lot of work.
“We’ve done some good work for charity and made lots of friends.”
