Basepoint Bournemouth match funds £5200.21 for Summer Solstice 10K Run

Bournemouth

Runners from across the Wessex region were out in force to mark Summer Solstice 2014 at the Autism Wessex 10K run at Moors Valley Country Park.

The run which took place on Friday 20th June was a huge success with 350 runners taking part in the 10K scenic route through forest.

Paul Reade, Community and Events Fundraiser for Autism Wessex said: “We were delighted to have been inundated with pre event entries again this year. We had a fantastic evening and would like to thank the Forestry Commission and all at Moors Valley for their support in allowing us to host this event at the country park again this year and we look forward to returning next year. As ever, the event would not have run so smoothly without the support of volunteers and community groups, who we are indebted to for their free help on the evening.  Another huge thank you goes to the event sponsors, Williams Thompson LLP, Basepoint Business Centres Bournemouth, who match funded the event and Abbey Life who sponsored the medals.
