Three Counties Running Club members Sandra Rhodes and Janette Smith took part in the Virtual LEJOG event – Land’s End to John O’Groats. 

The idea of the virtual event is to complete the distance of 874 miles in 12 months by either running, walking or both.  

Janette and Sandra took on the challenge together running all different distances and multi terrain routes to complete the challenge.

They both finished two months ahead of time and have now started to run the challenge backwards, starting at John O’Groats and this time finishing at Land’s End!

TCRC member Jacqueline McGonigle and running buddy Dave took part in the Darkness to Light 5k event around Omagh.
