400 runners took part in four races, organised by Andover Athletic Club and Test Valley Borough Council's Leisure and Wellbeing Department.

Funds were raised for Sainsbury's Sport Relief, which in turn raises some £50 million.

"Nick Woodford did a great job on behalf of Andover Athletics in organising this event and they couldn't have asked for a better day. Test Valley Brass provided some great atmosphere by playing during the morning, and it was good to see the mayor, Zilliah Brooks, starting the fourth race".

Before each race Jacqui Gentleman helped the runners warm up, and first aid was available in case any runner felt distressed. The finishing line was staffed by employees of Sainsbury's in Andover, and all the marshalls were supplied by the Andover Atheltics Club. The compere for the day was Olympic torchbearer Mike Dunham.
