In addition to the runners there were many adult volunteers who served as timekeepers along the route and who helped to serve the much welcome refreshments after the race. (The refreshments were donated by a member of the parish.)
On average the runners covered the track twice - the track distance was 400 meters - very impressive! But just as impressive is that the event raised over 11 000 for the new church.
Participants and volunteers have every reason to be pleased with the effort! And who knows, with such sucess we might see the start of a new tradition.
