Last weekend (Saturday 10) saw Three Counties Running Club (TCRC) members taking part in parkruns, a multi terrain 10k and a duathlon.

Mothering Sunday firstly saw TCRC member Tracey Else take to her running shoes and bike in her first ever duathlon event.

The event called The Monster Duathlon took place at Witchford Village College with the event consisting of a 5k run, 25k cycle ride and a 5k run.

The run was an out and back across a disused WW2 Airfield and the cycle event headed briefly onto the A10 before heading into Fenland territory going into Little Downham and Coveney.

Tracey’s times were as followed: 5k run: 24:41, 25k cycle: 55:09 and the final 5k run: 26:29.

There was a big hoo-hah at the Thetford Hoohah 10k race, which saw 12 TCRC members participate in the multi terrain course around a picturesque yet muddy Thetford Forest clocking up eight personal bests and two top 20 finishing spots.

Graham Rushmer was the first TCRC member to cross the line in 10th position in a PB of 42:54, closely followed in 11th position by Lee Johnson also with a PB 43:14.
