It’s been a busy few days for Three Counties Running Club as they begin to return to the new normal.
Club sessions restarted following the coronavirus outbreak, where five groups of six runners offered different speeds and distances as they began at various locations across Wisbech last week.
Some members took to their bikes to raise money for children with cancer and Batten Disease, where they also rode the ‘not the ride 100’ event organised by Fenland Running Club.
The route covered the likes of Leverington, Gorefield, Parson Drove, Murrow, Guyhirn and Wisbech St Mary.
Junior runners Josh and Jake Trundle took part in the VE Day event, as both boys ran at least three or 5k runs, with Josh also running a five-miler with dad Rickie.
