Battle Observer Comment: Come out and support the runners

THE annual bbb10k returns to town on Sunday, with a record number of participants expected.

Hopefully the event will stay dry and attract crowds of supporters along the route.

I just about struggled through the recent Bexhill 5k (my second, and probably my last, race) and noticed that the event attracted a very enthusiastic and supportive crowd, all be it sparse in some places.

Whether you are a speedy club runner, or just a determined plodder, a supportive crowd cheering you on can really make the difference.

So if you are in Battle on Sunday morning, come out and give a cheer for all those taking part.

And, of course, don’t forget to dig deep when the Boyes come round with their charity buckets.

Good luck to all who are taking part on Sunday and fingers-crossed for a record sum raised for the Battel Bonfire Boyes.
