On Sunday, three Fenland Running Club members took part in running three stages of the Great British Relay.

The GB Relay 2014, nicknamed, “The People’s Relay”, gives runners the chance to join in an adventure and, alongside up to 2000-plus runners, attempt to break a world record.

They will be carrying a specially-designed GPS baton right around the coastline of mainland Britain covering over 7,000 kilometres in 594 stages to show just what the running community can achieve. Taking part for FRC were Sean Connolly, Martin Jennings and Richard Hammond, who ran legs 556, 557 and 558 of the GB Relay which is due to finish on Thursday in Scarborough after setting off a month ago following the coast of Great Britain.

They were accompanied by “Casey”, the GPS tracking device which needs to be kept moving for over 7,000km to break the world relay record.
