I was quite overwhelmed on Boxing Day by the number of people who turned up to compete and watch the third Denmans Lane Dash. I was hoping for a few more competitors this year but we doubled it. I was genuinely blown away.
I was also impressed by the entrants who made a great effort with their fancy dress.
They got into the spirit of what the Denmans Lane Dash is and that is purely a fun event to give the local community something to do for an hour or two on Boxing Day.
I set the Dash up to give my friends and family a laugh and to get out of the house. I then thought it would be nice to open it up to the local community. This year proved that it is something people want, based on the wonderful compliments I received.
We were lucky with the weather again this year. The rain held off until just after the run when people had returned home.
It was a great race with more ladies taking part this year which was wonderful to see.
