RAF High Wycombe SHQ – Go Chasing Bananas


In the searing 30 degrees heat and dressed in neon yellow t-shirts, eleven members from Station Headquarters and Air Command High Wycombe, aka the ‘RAF High Wycombe Wild Bunch’ took part in the annual Bananaman Chase 10km at Willen Lake, Milton Keynes on Sun 2nd October 11.

The event was all about having fun, while raising some much needed cash for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. The aim was to run around a fairly flat 10km route, while chasing ten ‘bananas’, trying to beat as many as possible. The ten running bananas all had a special reason for being there, each having a personal connection with Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.  The bananas ran at different paces and started five minutes ahead of the mass start, so everyone had a chance to beat a banana! The team, both seasonal and first time 10km runners all successfully completed the run, raising more than £600 in sponsorship money.
