Poppy Run Clapham Common 5k

Race Date: Saturday, 04/11/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

In support of The Royal British Legion, this was one of 15 events taking place over two weekends. We gathered at the bandstand where an RBL rep gave a citation followed by a bugler’s playing of The Last Post. Two minutes’ silence followed, to be broken with the reveille and the reading of the Ode of Remembrance. Impeccably observed by all and passers-by. T-shirts donned and running with a sense of appreciation, we headed around a two-lap tarmac/track course. All finishers - including four-legged friends - collected a most befitting poppy motif medal.
