For Three Counties Running Club, the 40th anniversary of the London Marathon could not have been more successful.
Six members ran this year’s virtual event on Sunday, October 4 around Elm and Friday Bridge, led by Tracey Else, and received support from local companies who brought London landmark display boards placed around the route.
First aid, water and a toilet station and goody bags were provided to runners along the route, while they also received support by residents, relatives, staff from Peckover Primary School in Wisbech, their cycle support crew and other TCRC teammates.
Four of the original six also took part in their first marathon run.
