World Diabetes Day is a global awareness campaign focusing on diabetes. The day marks the birthday of Frederick Banting, who is noted as the co-discoverer of insulin.

2 members of our team are type 1 diabetics and so have to rely on insulin injections several times a day.

As long as you complete one lap then you will be a finisher and receive an official time and post race gift.
