Fenland-based Three Counties Running Club make their mark at Keith Hall Memorial 10k race hosted by Thorney Running Club

Three Counties Running Club had another great turnout at the Keith Hall Memorial 10k hosted by Thorney RC.

Held in memory of club founder and former chairman Keith Hall, this race starts from Bedford Hall in Thorney.

It takes participants along a road route through the village, into the country roads and back through the village to finish at Bedford Hall again.

It was a lovely sunny but fresh start to the race but the winds were brutal. The 10k is an out-and-back road race and competitors didn’t bargain for the entire 5k back towards the finish though being all headwind.

The idea was to cover the first 5k whilst it was tailwind as quick as you could using the tailwind to push you along then knuckle down for the tough 5k back.

There were 351 runners which is a great turnout.

Times: Richard Allen 42:07 (PB), Alfie Grant 44:51, James Hall 47:30 (PB), Lauren Day 48:37, Sarah Johnson 48:40 (PB), Sarah Melton-Whitelam 50:54 (CPB), Dawn Goodley 53:50, Claire Smithee 54:44, Victoria May 55:44, Melvin Green 59:40, Steve Whitelam 1:01:53, Frances Salter 1:04:26, Anneli Killen 1:05:17, Rachael Elliot 1:06:21 (PB), Sarah Lamb 1:08:35 and Martin Jackson 1:08:56.

Last weekend saw Rachael Elliot run in her first half marathon when she took on the Blickling Soring Half Marathon

The 13-mile race takes place throughout the beautifully scenic North Norfolk Blickling Estate, raising money for Home Start Families helping families in Norfolk.

The route is on mixed terrain and Elliot enjoyed a fantastic race, finishing in a time of 2:43:28 (PB).
