Organisers Military Fitness Circuits donated the £2,000 raised to Bloodwise.

Rugby boys Bobby and Ryan, who suffer from bilateral periventricular leukomalacia, took part in Saturday’s run with the help of their parents and team, raising money for Tree of Hope. On Sunday Mia, who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, completed the course with her family and friends.
