On Sunday 25th March, Tintwistle Athletic held a sponsored run from West Drive to Wembley involving over 50 juniors from their under 6 through to under 12’s. The youngsters handed in their sponsor forms for taking part and then ran laps round West Drive until the cumulative total reached 167 miles. The progress was monitored in the clubhouse on a large screen for parents to watch. The miles soon totted up with the challenge completed in just under an hour. The event was sponsored by Thorntons who provided an Easter chocolate treat for all the runners. The club is also holding an Easter raffle and the total raised so far is an amazing £1527. Club chairman Rob Cousen organised the event and thanked everyone for their support and for taking part. He said it was a great occasion for different age groups to work together to achieve the challenge as well as being a great fund raiser for the club.
