MAYFIELD Garden and Dedicated To Fitness joined forces recently to create a fun run where members of the community had an exclusive opportunity to explore the garden during a unique experience.
More than 150 people joined the free event.
Mark Simons from D2F briefed the eager crowd gathered in Mayfield’s Kitchen Garden area before they set off on either a three-kilometre run/walk or the six-kilometre run/walk.
The youngest attendee was two months old and the oldest runners were up to 70 years of age. There were also furry friends, families and fitness advocates (many of whom hadn’t been to Mayfield before) who all enjoyed exploring the garden.
Running down the allee of London plane trees and the obelisk being the finish line – it doesn’t get much better than that.
Mayfield Café served its garden and paddock-to-plate menu to all those who finished, competitively or leisurely, as Mark presented the winners with a goodie bag, including prizes donated by local businesses.
Mayfield gave a 12-month annual pass to each of the winners: three-kilometre male winner James Patterson and female winner Danielle Patterson; and six-kilometre male winner Mark Windsor and female winner Christie Schumacher.
Others rewarded themselves with a coffee from Mayfield Kiosk, a newly opened area that hosts the wood fire pizza oven. It’s now serving coffee, tea, pizza, pies and donuts, not to mention Mayfield’s wine.
The kiosk will be open for the crowds to flood through when Mayfield’s Autumn Festival begins this Saturday, April 15. Mayfield Garden will be open every day over Easter.
