37 dedicated walkers and runners joined CLIC Sargent for a very different 'night out' on Dundee Airport's main runway to take part in the first ever Dundee Midnight Runway Run.

Dundee Midnight Runway Run 2016

Well done to all the participants, together we raised a fantastic £9,702 for children and young people with cancer, and their families.

This could help pay for 10 families to stay in one of CLIC Sargent's Homes from Home for a month.

The event

From those dressed up in pyjamas, to Batman and ravers, to aeroplanes, the participants really got into the swing of the evening. 

The fastest man was Michael Hopkins, aka Batman, in a time of 13 minutes and one second and the fastest woman was Leanne Kennedy in a time of 14 minutes and 12 seconds. 

Team Pyjamas won the best fancy dress team prize and Robbie MacIntosh got the special award for being the youngest participant. 

The highest fundraiser of the night was Natalie Lough, who raised an outstanding £2,009!

Thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Holly Taylor said: "This was a fantastic night, everyone was in good spirits and I was bowled over by the fancy dress efforts. 

"The support we had from Derrick Lang and his team at the airport was outstanding, from Carl Roulston helping with the organising of the event, to the fire crew turning out to light the course, not forgetting  Fresh Jet for opening late to provide bacon rolls and refreshments for our participants. 

"A huge thank you to the team of volunteers - Mike and Bob on registration and Nick who came along and helped immensely with the timings.

"Also thank you to Murray Clark who provided the music and banter to keep everyone awake. This was a magnificent team effort - we are humbled by the support from everyone, particularly when they ended up getting to their beds so late - we couldn't have done it without you."
