A letter from our Chair:

Dear all,

I would just like to say thank you to everyone that helped us and made 1000 miles in a day most memorable. Thank you also to all the well wishes and the people that have donated and came down to support.
This email is to let you all know that ....... WE DID IT! 1083.2 Miles!!!! Despite the appalling rain 141 people turned up and did over 1000 Miles in a day for Help for Heroes! Congratulations to everyone.
I don't have a final target of how much was raised but it will be in the region of £2500.00! I will let you know the exact total as soon as i have it.
Thank you to all of the children that took part, they were amazing and some of them did more than 1 mile each! Thank you also to Tortoise and Hare, Cranleigh Runners. 13 ran the 44.5 miles back from Charing cross, and picked up another 2 half way!! Also a big thank you to my Cranleigh Sunflowers (for making it all come true) and to all of the other people that came out in the wind and the rain to run and make the day so fantastic.
Thank you too to Cranleigh Scouts, Cranleigh Fire Brigade, Cranleigh Police, St Andrews Cricket Club, St Johns Ambulance, First class faces, Tony Fresko's, and Cranfold Physio for being there on the day. Without all of you the day wouldn't have been such a success.
There were also 32 prizes donated. Thank you to everyone that was also involved with that as well.
This experience was a pleasure to do and we all enjoyed most minutes of it. It was inspired by our friend Chris Finill and his friend Steve Pope, who are going to run across America this year! 3200 Miles in approx 75 days!!! We all wish you the very best of luck and look forward to tracking your progress along the way. This will also be in aid of Help for Heroes. Please go to www.runacrossamerica.co.uk for further details.
Many, many thanks again to all involved.
