THE second Brill Hilly charity run was a huge success although fewer funds were raised, say organisers.

The 10km run in aid of children’s AIDS charity The Instika Trust had 141 runners, despite the Reading and White Horse half marathons taking place on the same day.

Diane Sharp, trustee of Instika, said: “While the main race started at the windmill, a 1km fun run and a 150m dash took place back at the finish at the Brill Sports and Social club.

“With the weather being very calm, cool and bright we had perfect conditions.

“We raised around £2,500 for the Instika Trust, which supports grassroots HIV/Aids projects primarily in South Africa. We are sadly down on last year’s figures and what we had hoped to raise for our new projects.”
