Leamington runners go pink for breast cancer cause

Tootoos, wigs, sashes and other pink outfits were donned by runners in Leamington who came out in force to support a special charity Parkrun event on Saturday.

More than £370 was raised for Breast Cancer Care at the event at Newbold Comyn, which was held in memory of Harbury mum Rachel Brown, who died in December six years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Around 20 keen runners set their alarms extra early to join race director Susie Tawney - who organised the event for her friend Rachel - to start one of four laps of the 5km course at 7am. More runners joined them for laps two at 7.40am and three at 8.20am - while there were more than 300 for the final run at the usual Parkrun starting time of 9am.

See this Friday’s Courier for a report on the event. Here is a clip of the pink runners at the start of the 9am course.
