The Fourth Tier Four Team Trial 60K challenge is complete. Despite injury and various aches and pains all the teams completed the distance. Clearly the motivation to get out and get going is as strong as ever during lockdown.
Goddy Gliders excelled themselves by cutting 55 minutes off last weeks’ time. Sophie is flying on her racing wheelchair on rollers at home.
Back to Asics and Hemchester Harriers managed to finish five minutes faster while BRJ Butterflies paced it perfectly with the same time as last week.
Rebel Runners did the same, but as their time was rounded up to the nearest minute… sorry.
The Best Team’s average was slower than last week but everyone enjoyed their runs in the spring sunshine.
England Athletics current Covid guidance indicates that we might be able to run together again as a club on 29th March. It all goes well with the reduction of infection and keeping new variants at bay then that’s only 28 more sleeps from the beginning of March.
So, to the final challenge of the series; the fifth and final 60K challenge begins on Sunday 28th February and ends in grand style on Saturday 13th March. Be sure to be home by 11.00am as you do not wish to miss the club’s AGM.
Good Luck, Run Well, and Stay Safe.
