Runners kick-started the new year
Three members of Three Counties Running Club wanted to kick start the new year so took on the challenge of RED January which stands for Run Every Day.
There was no distance stipulated but you had to log a run every day, which is a lot harder than it sounds, particularly with the weather conditions.
Vicki Drake completed the challenge, covering a fantastic 180 miles over the 31 days and will be making a donation to a local mental health charity.
Husband and wife team, Tony and Sarah Lamb, were also successful and covered more than 100 miles each, which is the most they’ve ever covered in a month.
They ran an extra day as they started their challenge on New Year’s Eve with the Virtual Marham 10k, and Sarah had to complete some of her challenge in her own back garden while having to isolate.
* Three Counties member Steve Clarke and his family set their own January run target.
Steve, who was recovering from a torn calf muscle, wanted to slowly build his miles up without risk of more damage so he signed up to complete 50 miles for January.
To get the rest of the family involved, wife Zoe and daughter Thea (7), were set the challenge of running a total 13.1 miles half marathon distancein January. They all completed their challenge.
*Husband and wife Members Phil and Vicki Newton completed 100 miles for January while participating in an event called ‘2020 Can Jog on, Run For All Challenge’ for The Jane Tomilson Appeal.
The challenge was to run over 31 miles from December 26 to January 6.
The Jane Tomlinson Appeal is the legacy of the late, inspirational Jane Tomlinson CBE and exists to support children’s health and wellbeing and to improve the lives of people with cancer.
*Dawn Ball ran locally and completed the Virtual Sandringham 10k in a watch time of 51:12 and she finished first female and 8th overall.
