Three Counties runners enjoyed festive races
Two Three Counties Running Club members won entry to the Revesby 5 mile trail run, set in the heart of Lincolnshire.
This is a proper old school cross country event and the constant wind and rain while running through fields made for a very wet, slippery and muddy affair.
Kersten Müller finished in 13th position out of 119 in a great time of 41:22 and Sarah-Jane Macdonald in 39th position in a time of 48:42.
New Year’s Eve saw members travel to Peterborough and Marham for 10k races.
The Peterborough event ended up being a muddy, hilly and a rather wet occasion at Ferry Meadows.
But there were great times all round, with first home for the club being Dawn Ball in 53:37, then Jayne Spurrier 56:20, Victoria May 58:24, Donna Johnson 58:26 and Melvin Green 1:04:16.
Members also competed in the Marham Flyers 10k event held at RAF Marham.
