Over 400 hundred runners took part in the 11th annual Caterham Rotary Easter Bunny runs at Queens Park on Sunday 25th March.

First boy and girl to cross the line in the 1k (which isn’t a race) were Ben Wyatt and Estee Norman

In the 5k race the first man home and first lady home both broke the previous records. Alix Ramsier completed the run along with his dog Reggie in 15 mins 40secs and Loulou Rowlands ran home in a time of 19mins 49 secs. 

Every finisher in the Easter Bunny 1K Fun Run and 5K Race received an Easter egg. There were additional prizes presented to the best dressed who were awarded large chocolate bunnies.

Emily Watson (of Bunny Hop Dance and Fitness) lead the warm up again this year and a large group of her class members ran the 5k course raising sponsorship for Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance. She told the 5k runners: “None of you should worry about finishing last because I will make sure I am the one who is last over the finish line!”

The race starter, Chair of Tandridge District Council, Councillor Gill Black presented the prizes together with the Vet on the Hill Ian Mathers who sponsored the fastest and best dressed bunny prizes. 

Caterham Rotary Club’s organiser for this event, David Barrett commented “I would like to thank everyone who took part in this year’s event. We also hope they raised a lot of money for their chosen charity or for our Rotary charities. A big thank you also to our sponsors this year:

Bunny Hop Dance and Fitness, Surrey National Golf Club, The Caterham and District Independent, CATAX Ltd, Ross Cycles, Tesco, Morrisons, 1st Caterham Scouts, The Vet on the Hill, North Downs Hospital and Tandridge District Council.
