"We estimate we had the same number taking part as we had last year, around 2,000.
"Last year we raised £54,000 so we're hope to raise more this year once all the sponsorship money comes in.
"We are really grateful to everyone who took part because we are completely reliant on donations and all the money raised will be put to good use to help those affected by meningitis."
