Last Saturday (9th September) an astonishing 4,000 participants gathered in the iconic grounds of the Longleat Estate to take part in Glow in the Park:Longleat, the 6km UV family fun run.
The wet weather did not dampen the spirits and the crowd and atmosphere were buzzing with excitement. Families, running groups, groups of friends, individuals were swept around the course to 80s and 90s tunes. Disco The grounds were awash with neon sweatbands, face paints, neon tutus and smiles.
The course wound its way round the spectacular estate finishing in front of Longleat House and featured seven fun zones, including The Fluorescent Paint Blast, Squelchy Foam Zone, and for brave hearted runners The Lion’s Den!
Best of all, Saturday’s event has raised significant funds to support Alabaré’s work helping homeless people.
Andrew Lord, CEO Alabaré;
“Alabaré’s Glow Run on Saturday night was a wonderful success. It was staggering to see over 4,000 people dressed in neon having a fun filled night. It was a brilliant opportunity for us to raise awareness of our charity, Alabaré and Homes for Veterans, and will help us transform the lives of people in our communities who are devastated by the tragedy of homelessness. Our thanks to all those who took part and those who worked so hard on the night to make it all possible.
