Dr Dan was delighted to take part in this year’s Otley Village Mile, and even more pleased to finish in third place in the 6 mile race amongst a field of roughly 40 competitors. The mile was held as part of a nationally coordinated event, which saw communities across the country stage similar races, with all of the proceeds raised going to good causes supported by Sport Relief. It was a real pleasure for Dan to start the race with Ipswich Town FC and England legend Mick Mills, who, as a fellow runner reminded Dan, still holds the holds the Ipswich record for the most number of appearances, having played 741 games for the club.
As well as the charity run, a number of other activities and fundraising stalls for all the family were also on offer around the village. The day was a huge success, with many local residents attending to show their support for a very worthy cause. Dan would like to thank Otley Village Stores manager Penny Sunaway for the time and effort she put in, along with other local volunteers, to make sure that the event ran smoothly, and he very much looks forward to participating again next year.
