More than 430 runners braved the hot weather conditions to take part in the annual running event Silsoe Stride at Wrest Park, Silsoe on Sunday 24th June.
The Annual Silsoe Stride is organised by volunteers from the local village with National Sameday as the main sponsor. Now in its sixth year, the event has grown in popularity, and this years even saw many families turn out to take part, including almost 100 youngsters who took part in their very own Children’s Fun Run after the event.
The 5K and 10K races took runners on a picturesque route of local farmland set within the historic surroundings of Wrest Park. This year, National Sameday sponsored the race for the third consecutive year and had a team of almost 20 runners take part.
Commenting on the event, Partha Dey, Managing Director of National Sameday said “Congratulations to everyone who took part in the 5K and 10K – and not forgetting the superfast fun run youngsters. National Sameday is delighted to sponsor this established event, supporting the community to encourage people of all running abilities to improve their health and wellbeing in a special historical setting. I can’t wait to join the runners on the start line in 2019.”
