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.

Next across the line was Tim Clough with a great PB 1:33:31, followed closely by Graham Rushmer with a sprint finish to claim a time of 1:34:29.
Nicole Coughlin was the first female TCRC member to finish in a great time of 1:40:16, ahead of Matthew Knott and Michelle Brown, who ran the entire race together, finishing in 1:48:59 with both claiming PB’s.
