More news, no ads


Three Counties Running Club (TCRC) members took part in the ‘Tribe 10k for Love’ which was held in Long Sutton.

Across the UK, 100 Tribe Ambassadors are setting out to rally their own community to help to raise £250,000 for ‘The Tribe Freedom Foundation’ to raise awareness of modern slavery and set up two new homes for UK survivors.

As this was a charity event there were no official times in this flat road race with the elements of headwind and sunshine.
