Fenland and Three Counties enjoy 'lovely' runs
Two running clubs came together to celebrate their love of running on Valentine’s Day.
Normally this date means the Stamford Valentines 30k race.
Unfortunately due to Covid this event was cancelled so Fenland Running Club invited Three Counties Running Club to join in a virtual Valentines 30k relay.
The challenge was to make teams of three runners, give your team a name, then individually go and run 10k.
There were 27 teams and 81 runners in all and they two weekends to complete their runs.
The total miles completed by both teams was a massive 503.3 miles, with Three Counties’ Team Mop and Balds claiming first place in a time of 2:06:28, ahead of Fenland’s Team Spongebob Slow Pants in 2:13:42.
First male and female were both TCRC members, Lee Johnson and Vicki Newton.
