CHILDREN at the Busy Bees nursery in Corby greeted a runner.
The youngsters waved flags as they welcomed Craig Stewart from Corby, who had run from the Kettering Busy Bees branch on the Kettering Venture Park to the Corby branch in Charter Court on Wednesday.
Mr Stewart, whose girlfriend Carly Letch works at the nursery, completed the feat as part of its campaign to celebrate the forthcoming Olympics while raising money for the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.
Nursery assistant manager Sarah Adcock said: “Craig was quite out of breath and I think he was quite relieved to get here.
“He carried a torch the Kettering nursery had made.”
As part of the campaign, children will also be holding sponsored walks around the garden and staff were set to take on an exercise bike challenge.
