TCRC racking up the miles
Updated: Jul 1, 2018
Three Counties Running Club were racking up the miles this weekend in marathon preparation runs at Northampton and Milton Keynes.
On a rather frosty, foggy start TCRC Members Arthur Sargeant, Vicki Drake and Sarah-Jane Macdonald travelled to Milton Keynes for the re-run of the winter half marathon which was cancelled in December due to bad weather. By the start of the race at Willen Lakes the cold air and fog had lifted and the sun shone on what was to be a lovely rolling hills course through woodlands and pathways around Milton Keynes. Arthur was first member home after running his first half marathon in a fantastic time of 2:00:49 so close to a sub 2hrs, next to cross the finish line was Vicki and Sarah-Jane hand in hand in a time of 2:19:54.
Sunday also saw Nick Sheehan travel to Naseby to run the Naseby 16.45miles. This strange distance is named after the Battle of Naseby which took place on the rolling countryside of Northamptonshire on 14th June 1645. This very challenging and undulating course entirely on roads boasts a total ascent of 289m so not a race for the faint hearted. Nick crossed the line in a cracking time of 2:54:00.
Kings Lynn ‘B’ route Colin Apps 24:12 Tracey Else 24:16 Alice Ingman 27:59 Jemma Red 28:26PB Joely Apps had a cracking run after being off injured for some time and wanting to beat 34 mins finished in a great time of 28:56.
March Mark Mattless 25:13
Perry Hall Steve Clarke 31:31 CPB.
Three Counties Running Clubs next event is the Easter Run at Wisbech Park on Good Friday and also the main event is The ‘in tents’ weekender at The Secret garden Wisbech St Mary. This incorporates a 10k race and 2 x 5k relay. Both start and finish at the same time/place. Excellent goody bag, quality one off designed finishers’ medal, optional bar, bbq, music and camping after. You can choose to just race, stay for the bbq or choose to camp over. Both races start at 3pm Saturday 28th April 2018 and there is a social Run on the Sunday morning if anyone would like to join in.
