Results from Event #68, 28th August 2021
Before we bring you news of Fly 5K Event #68 today we have to take a brief look back at Fly Bovingdon last Sunday at Bovingdon Airfield, Hertfordshire.
What a fantastic event: the amazing Fly 5K community truly came together and created a unique and highly enjoyable and friendly event. We missed each and everyone of you who were unable to attend in person due to the travel distance involved, holidays or other commitments but we know that you were with us virtually, and indeed many did complete their own personal virtual Fly Bovingdon.
There have been many thanks given out already via Facebook but here we simply want to thank you, the Fly 5K community, for creating such a friendly, welcoming, supportive and encouraging space, and the huge on the day contributions to Fly Bovingdon by many of you. Thanks!
