Badminton Horseless Trials

My name is Oakley James and on the 29th September I ran in the 10k Badminton Horseless trial event as the youngest member of the team, raising money to support a local charity called Home-Start Stroud District. The weather was fairly kind to us, as storms were forecast! I was planning on only running the 5k but changed my mind on the day and I'm glad I did. We all had to run through a lake and jump over obstacles, which was a lot of fun. The whole team finished the race, and I came 1st place in my category and 9th overall, against the adults, which was a fantastic personal result.

The total raised to date is £1008.21 which will help to continue the good work that Home-Start do. I would like to thank in particular all the teachers of Maidenhill School who sponsored me.
