A police box, a nun, an elf and very glamorously dressed lady in pink wearing a tiara and a diamond necklace were just some of the outfits on show on the start line for the Portchester Ladies Day 5, organised as a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Care! The sun came out, right on cue, making a glorious summer Sunday morning under the gaze of Portchester Castle.
140 runners set off on a 5k, and a 5 mile course, taking in views across Portsmouth Harbour and Fareham Creek.
First lady home in the 5k was Victoria Ayriss, with Marie Droniou-Bordry. Times were not important for once, this race was all about fun and fundraising! so much so, the boys from Portchester Fire station all turned up wearing their finery and becoming an impromptu ‘selfie station’!!
The event was a huge success and will definitely feature in the Rural Running diary for 2018. We all raised just shy of £1000 for Breast Cancer Care which is fantastic!
Thanks to everyone who contributed by giving up their time and by donating prizes for the raffle!!
