Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club brought their award-winning year to a close with a family fun run from their Darland Avenue headquarters on New Year’s Eve. It has been a momentous year for this family-friendly hockey club, starting with the relaying of a brand new artificial pitch costing in excess of £200,000 and culminating in Medway Sport’s Club of the Year Gold Award.
Over 75 runners and walkers, young and old, turned out to celebrate the Club’s achievements by completing a 5k or 10k route around Gillingham and Hempstead. Local fitness groups Medway Fit and Amazon24 Fitness joined in the fun to ensure a bumper turnout.
Club Chairman, Bruce Wayne, said “It’s been an amazing year for our Club and today’s family run has been a fitting celebration of all that we have achieved over the past 12 months. The turnout has been fantastic. It’s great to see so many people coming together to enjoy what the Club has to offer. We are now raring to go for 2017 and can’t wait to see what the New Year has in store for us.”
