5 AND 10 MILE RACE APOLOGY

MERSEA ISLAND LIONS GIVE THEIR APOLOGIES FOR THE LACK OF PHOTOS OF THE 10 MILE RUNNERS. THE PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE DAY WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF ALL THE RUNNERS FINISHING WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM THIS ROLE TO TAKE PHOTOS OF THE PRESENTATION WHICH  WAS OF THE 5 MILE FINISHERS. THIS WAS AN ERROR ON OUR SIDE AND WILL BE ADDRESSED FOR FUTURE RUNNING EVENTS

Mersea Island Lions Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all the runners that took part, their supporters, all the S.M.I.L.E Volunteers and every one else that supported this race which took part in poor conditions. A special thanks this year to Outreach runners who did amazingly well. All the money raised at this event goes to our supported charities of which there are many. THANK YOU

ROUND THE ISLAND ALL TERRAIN RACE

Mersea Island Lions would like to thank all the Runners, Marshalls and Public support received in the lead up and on the day of the Round The Island All Terrain Race. Without all of you this race would not be the great success it has become, not just here, but all over the United Kingdom and some runners from abroad. Thank you very very much and hope to see you and have the support in the future.
