Shivering sprinters in their Speedos

Some in Southbank missed the memo about the freezing winter weather last month, as they took part in the Speedo Sunflower Dash at Queensbridge Square.

The revealing race was all in the name of a good cause, raising money and awareness for the Leukaemia Foundation.

The Leukaemia Foundation’s Meaghan Bush said the dash was a great day for contestants but, more importantly, for patients.

“The Speedo Sunflower Dash was a great success for its first year. We were thrilled with the turnout at Southbank and that we raised much-needed funds for patients and their families with blood cancers,” Ms Bush said.

She was also complimentary of the dash’s Southbank location, saying: “Southbank was a great location as it was really central for our participants to attend, we had lots of great on-lookers, thanks to the prime location.”

“We certainly will be back next year and let’s hope the sun shines bright again,” Ms Bush added.
