Ten Three Counties Running Club members took to the wet, cold streets of Cambridge to join 9,000 other runners in the 13.1-mile Saucony Half Marathon, with club members Sandra Rhodes and Sarah-Jane Macdonald supporting as volunteers.

Storm Freya didn’t hit but TCRC definitely made their mark. Personal bests (PB) were claimed by seven members on a rather miserable day.

Lee Johnson was the first club member to finish in a cracking PB of 1:29:34 and also finishing in the top 550 runners.
