Eggcellent event by Three Counties Running Club
Following on from last years Easter and Santa Run, the club decided that at this years Easter Run we wanted to help raise money for a chosen charity. The charity ‘Callum Pites Smile Charity’ was put forward to us and as a club we thought it was a fantastic way to support young children with cancer.
Over 200 people turned up at Wisbech Park on Good Friday to take part in the Easter 1k and 5k race. There was also walking football, food and craft stalls, games and an Easter egg hunt which the kids loved. Both races were started with a brilliant speech from the mayor who came to show his support and also Clubbercise got everyone moving in the warm up before the races.
The 1k race saw 54 people take part from ages ranging from 1-90, whether they were running, walking, pushing a buggy or being carried.
The 5k event had a great turnout of 75 participants with runners in attendance from Ryston, MarchAC, Thorney, Ely and Bushfield Joggers to name a few. There was a TCRC Members battle to take 1st and 2nd spot with Morgan Harrison first home in a fantastic PB 18:56 followed by Graham Rushmer in 19:20 and the First Lady home was Lilly Fiveash from March AC in 23:49PB.

Three Counties Running Club have also been fund raising to raise money to buy a defib.
A bingo evening, a club raffle, raffle and games held at the Santa Run and also the children’s running games/activities held in the park during the school holidays, all these events helped to raise the funds. So we are really pleased to announce the receipt of our new Defib.
This is a brilliant piece of equipment with fully automated audio instructions when you open the lid.
We have migrated one of the existing first aid kits in to the defib bag and its all ready to go. (We will be ordering children sized defib pads in the coming weeks). This will be available at club sessions and races
Hopefully we will never have the need to use this but we are fully equipped if we do.
TCRC are next flying the flag at Boston in the Half and full marathon in 15th April. Please see our website for information on our club and up and coming events
