The Purple Army came out in force on Sunday 24th March 2019 to take part in the Coventry 5k. It was the first time the 5k has ran along side the Coventry Half both of which formed part of the Festival of Running which celebrates Coventry being European City of Sport in 2019.
Central Galaxy Coventry Trampoline Club gathered a team of 30 parents and members to take part in the event and raise much needed funds for the club to buy new equipment. We were blessed with a sunny day and runners and supporters met in Coventry City Centre wearing their commemorative City of Sport purple t-shirts for the occasion.
The runners running the half marathon got off first and then it was our turn. We had a mixture of abilities in the team and we so pleased that so many people got involved.
Congratulations to Dan S who was first across the line for the club in a lightening quick time of 22 minutes and came 12th out of 318. Ayesha ran a fantastic race and was the 2nd female to cross the line in the race.
A big thank you to everyone who gave up their Sunday morning to be involved whether that was as a runner or a supporter. Also a big thank you to anyone that has sponsored us your support is amazing.
So far we have raised £600 online and there were lots of sponsorship forms handed out. Through all of our fundraising during February and March we have now been able to order the first item on our wish list which is the DMT landing area. We will share some pictures once it arrives.
