SPEEDY runners caused quite a stir in Bognor Regis.
It was not just their trainers fundraisers were pulling on when they took part in the first ever 118 118 fun run and walk.
They were also equipped with wigs and moustaches, aping the comedy characters from the TV ads, when they set off on their 2.5-mile journey along the promenade from Aldwick’s West Park to Butlin’s and back.
The unique charity event raised close to £3,000 for the Myasthenia Gravis Association.
Organiser Steve Saunders said: “With all the runners getting their very own wig, moustache and 118 number it was an amazing sight to see them all running along the seafront.
“The entrants have raised a fantastic sum of money for our charity and we are already thinking about next year’s event.
“We are very grateful to all the helpers who ensured it was a great success on the day.”
The route was also entirely pushchair and wheelchair friendly and those who crossed the finish line received a medal for their efforts.
Myasthenia Gravis is a rare auto immune disease that can strike from childhood.
Its symptoms include a fluctuating muscle weakness.
