TCRC make it a race to remember
On the 11th hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month, 100 years on Three Counties Running Club had a special way to celebrate Remembrance Sunday.
Along with the 299 runners registered to take part in the TCRC 2nd annual GM10K race we also had our first wheelchair participant, Mr Peter Downing. The fast, flat 10k race starts and finishes at Leverington offering a great PB potential. The rain held off but the wind was strong but this didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the runners who still managed some great times. The event started with a speech and the laying of a wreath by the clubs very own Arthur Sargeant in his full RAF uniform followed by a 2 minutes silence then ready for the off.
