By Fenland Citizen Reporter

On a rather chilly Sunday morning three Three Counties Running Club members entered the Thetford Trail 10k Race.

The one-lap course ventured down winding trails through the picturesque pine trees of Thetford forest.

The first club member home in a superb time of 40:56 and seventh place out of 357 runners was Lee Johnson just four seconds off his PB. Team member and wife Sarah Johnson was next home in a PB of 55:07 followed by Sarah Melton-Whitelam in a great time of 57:01.
