The Axa End-to-End charity event is expected to beat last year’s total of $150,000.

Anne Mello, the chairwoman of the End-to-End, said yesterday that the cash had still to be totted up, but that she was confident this year’s event would top 2018. She added that the number of people taking part was also likely to beat last year’s figure of 2,220.

Ms Mello said: “It was outstanding. The energy and enthusiasm of the participants was fantastic and all the volunteers were out in full force and were so supportive.

“So many of the water stops had giveaways beyond just the water and there was music and entertainment from end to end. It was an amazing celebration.”

Ms Mello added that many participants had taken part in fancy dress.

She said: “There was a group of girls in cheerleading outfits and a group of men from First Atlantic Commerce and friends dressed as princesses and Team Lunch were dressed as lionfish.

“Beyond people in costumes, we saw lots of families participating together and school teams.”

She thanked the volunteers, sponsors, spectators and people who provided medical support.

The charities picked for this year’s event were WindReach, an outdoor centre for the disabled, Friends of Hospice, youth adventure organisation Raleigh Bermuda and Age Concern.
