Leverington Three Counties club hosting special 10k
Three Counties Running Club’s first UKA licensed race The George Munday 10k will be on Sunday, November 12, at 11am.
A proud TCRC said: “We’re excited to be hosting a 10km race that we’ve worked hard towards club inception.
“The George Munday 10k will set off from our HQ at Leverington Sports and Social Club (LSSC).
“The fast, flat and sheltered course will take you through sprawling backroads into Newton, before you make your way down towards the finish.”
It is called the George Munday 10k because, in 1946, Leverington Hall along with 32 acres of land, were sold to George Campbell Munday, who was decorated with the Military Cross. George still lived there in the 1950’s and the field used by LSSC was given to Leverington by him.
Race information: A chipped time, sell-out race of 220 places, starting at 11:03 after a two-minute silence for Remembrance Day. Race starts 500m from the church and finishes on the sports field at LSSC.
Race sponsors: Webb’s of Leverington, Acme Cabs, GB Auto’s, The Rising Sun Inn, JB Bikes.co.uk, Fraser Dawbarns LLP solicitors.
