Kicking Blue Monday into the distance was the aim of the game for Three Counties Running Club in their latest lockdown challenge. 

Members had to try and find as many things as possible that were in the colour blue and turn frowns, caused by what is known as the most depressing day of the year, into beaming sunshine smiles.

Some members were inventive and with the weather being cold and icy, they could easily include pictures of themselves.

Meanwhile, TCRC member Zoe Gourley took part in a virtual challenge of her own. 

Zoe ran the ‘don’t be the same, be different’ virtual run, where you could choose any distance to run, from 5k to a marathon of 26.2 miles.
