Watch a great club event from Sunday
With a bumper turn-out and over £22,000 raised, Sunday’s Minithon was the best yet – and a video of the event is now on our official You Tube channel.
Put together by WDON’s Rob Cornell, it features race footage from the fourth staging of the Minithon and interviews with Academy Manager Jeremy Sauer and Dons goalkeeping hero Seb Brown, who is back at the club coaching young academy prospects between the sticks.
Debbie Francis, Development Officer at AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls, and Emma O’Connor, Sports Development Officer (Female and Disabilities) also talk about the event and raising the profile of what they do.
There was also added spice to the event with a Peperami or two spotted running around the 5km course at the training ground!

The Minithon raised over £22,000 for the Academy, AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls, AFC Wimbledon Foundation, and the Dons Trust.
The main aim was taking part and raising funds for the club, but the times clocked by our winners were of a particularly high standard this year.
Adam Harwood won the main race in a superb time of 17 mins 19 secs, ahead of AFC Wimbledon Sports Scientist Jason Moriarty (18 mins 40 secs) with Becky Nicholas (18 mins 45 secs) in third.
Bryant Bilongo stormed to victory in the academy race with a time of 18 mins 14 secs, just pipping Elliot Bolton (18 mins 16 secs) with Tom Scott (18 mins 32 secs) taking third place.
Alice McCormack was first past the finishing line in the AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls race, ahead of Hollie Hume and Jasmin Buckhurst.
We wish to thank all the volunteers who helped to organise a great event and supporters for taking part.
A more extensive write-up and photographs will feature in the match programme for Bradford on 29 October.
