Runners delivered a strong performance after their trip on one of America’s most notable highways... albeit virtually.
Three Counties members took on the ‘Route 66 challenge’, where they had to log every run or walk throughout February in a bid to reach 2,400 miles, the total distance of the road.
Forty-five members submitted their mileage, which totalled 4,270.67 miles, smashing the distance needed which, in reality, crosses eight states between Chicago and Santa Monica in California.
Meanwhile, Tracy Adams completed her own virtual steps challenge from Land’s End to Peckover Primary School in Wisbech.
Tracy covered 751,776 steps, the equivalent of 377 miles, between February 1-28 to raise £250 for the town’s food bank.
