Bad Day at the Office for Gargoyles

292 people compete in the 8th Leaden Boot Challenge on Sunday 20 May

Amazingly, over 250 of these people, not forgetting several dogs, completed the challenge of walking or running a marathon distance of 26.2 miles in under 12 hours.  It was a hot day for those taking part but the views were amazing with bluebells, garlic and mayblossom in full bloom.  The first person home, Kurt Fitch of Nottingham, was twenty minutes ahead of the rest of the field.

Over 50 local people helped to make the event possible by organising refreshments for the competitors, marking the route and manning the checkpoints.  Enough funds were raised to support St Peter’s Church, Alstonefield and Wetton Village Halls and Wetton and Alstonefield Community First Responders.

Results can be found on the Leaden Boot Challenge page.
