The Solas Centre couldn’t have asked for a better turn out for its South East Run for Life on Sunday, October 14th. The huge numbers that took part and the fantastic Fun for Life event at the People’s Park in Waterford City all made the 5th South East Run for Life the best ever!
With another increase in numbers, over 200 more than last year, 1,900 runners, joggers and walkers lined the streets of Waterford in the famous luminous orange South East Run for Life t-shirts.
The new route this year was a great success, bringing out hundreds of supporters cheering the participants on.
And what fun was had in the Park!! Torann Drummers welcomed the runners home at the finish line, bouncy castles, bungee trampolines, hot air balloon along with a farmer’s market, “Stars For Life” kids fun races, magicians, balloon modellers and Beat 102 103 all made the afternoon a real celebration in the People’s Park.
The total monies raised for the Solas Centre and the South East Cancer Foundation will be announced by the organisers next week.
