In a hurry

One hundred and twenty enthusiasts ran up and down the stairs at the Forum on 4 April - all in a good cause.

Twenty teams competed for the fastest time, which was achieved by Ibex Rocks. These mountaineers were the fastest to cover 160 steps in the preliminary rounds and in the final. The Magic Minions and the Sexy Strawberries raised the highest amount in sponsorship, at 442 euros. And High Heals, a team which ran in high heels, got the prize for the most original outfits. The money raised through the race goes to the two Wageningen teams competing in this year's Alpe d'HuZes, a cycling tour to raise funds for cancer research. A total of 5500 euros was raised during this evening.  NM, photo Bart de Gouw
