A high visibility ‘Elvis’ suit was the choice of outfit for the winner of the Turkey Trot fun run; Corporal Chris Sutton, who works in the Aircraft Weapons Engineering Section at RAF Coningsby.
He completed the 4k run around the village of Coningsby well ahead of fellow competitors, for which he won the prize of a bottle of wine and a chocolate orange.
Best dressed lady and best dressed gentleman each won a box of chocolates and a box of biscuits: Sergeant Amanda Flint entered the race as a ‘Tinsel Christmas Tree’ but the ‘Joker’ did not reveal his identity; he just disappeared back to work after collecting his prizes!
Station Commander, Group Captain ‘Sammy’ Sampson sounded an air horn to start the fun run on Wednesday 14 December 2011, amongst the hardy competitors who turned out on the day, were a ‘Caveman’ and ‘Ozzy Osbourne’.
The Physical Education Flight team, who organised the fun run, invited Station personnel to burn off a few extra calories before the Christmas holidays. And raise money for local charity – Coningsby Allsports – at the same time!
Coningsby Allsports is a local charity which aims to keep youngsters aged from 8 – 21 occupied on a Friday night. A range of sports are offered to those who attend. Please call the Coningsby Parish Clerk on telephone: 01526 343523 if you would like to volunteer your assistance or provide new equipment.
