The grey clouds didn’t put off Three Counties RC runners on Saturday morning as they took to weekly Parkruns in both King’s Lynn and March.

Good runs were had at King’s Lynn, with Colin Simpson just back from injury and Jo won the battle of the Garners, finishing second in her age category, closely followed by husband Chris. Sarah Lamb also had a good run, not far from her PB the previous weekend.

At March, Nicole Coughlin managed a superb sub 23-minute time bringing her home as first lady finisher. Steve Clarke also had a brilliant run at March.

Sarah-Jane and Maisie MacDonald competed at the Waterbeach Running Festival. Junior runner Maisie was second lady finisher in the 2K race, finishing 17th out of a field of 154 runners and came second in her age category. Mum, Sarah-Jane, achieved a new PB in the 10K.
