The Bideford Amateur Athletics Club took on the challenge in aid of local charity Northam Lodge.
BIDEFORD Amateur Athletics Club is celebrating after it’s ‘awesome pub run’ raised nearly £170 for charity.
The club took on the run from pub-to-pub across Bideford and Instow, then taking the ferry to Appledore, finishing at its club house.
Entrants paid £2.50 each to be donated to Northam Lodge and ran a collection along the way in each of the eight pubs it visited.
Candace Jewell, joint Bideford AAC Harrier secretary, said: “We all love our running but there is also a big social side to the club and this event was definitely a fun running event.
“Big congratulations to everyone who took part and a big thank you to everyone who donated.
“A special thank you to Appledore and Instow ferry for accommodating us so well on the day; and also the Beaver Inn in Appledore for kindly supplying well needed sandwiches and chip.”
