Whilst many people were taking advantage of the weekend before Christmas to do some last minute shopping, thirty members of Biggleswade AC donned their wings, dusted off their tutus and checked that their wands were in good working order for the club’s annual Fairy Run.
The event is a 3 mile race around the perimeter of the RSPB’s Lodge
reserve in Sandy and the joint winners of the race, this year, were Vicky Berry and Joanne Ellary.
With the weather being unseasonably warm there were one or two ‘unusual’ outfits on display, along with a few traditional, festive themed outfits as well. The winner of the ‘Best Dressed Fairy’ award, as voted by club members, was Natalie Morgan with her ‘Fairy Codmother’ creation – Nat also won the award back in 2013 and is the first club member to have now won the award twice.
The draw for the club’s two London Marathon entries also took place and the lucky(!) winners are Marc Deans and Neil Harvey
