“Callum Pites Smile Charity was put forward to us and as a club we thought it was a fantastic way to support young children with cancer,” said a club spokesman.

Over 200 people turned up at Wisbech Park on Good Friday to take part in the Easter 1k and 5k race.

There was also walking football, food and craft stalls, games and an Easter egg hunt which the kids loved.

Both races were started with a speech from the mayor who came to show his support. ‘Clubbercise’ then got everyone moving in the warm-up before the races.

The 1k race saw 54 people take part from ages ranging from 1-90, whether they were running, walking, pushing a buggy or being carried.

The 5k event had a great turnout of 75 participants with runners in attendance from Ryston, MarchAC, Thorney, Ely and Bushfield Joggers to name a few.

Three Counties Running Club have also been fund raising to raise money to buy a defib.

A bingo evening, a club raffle, raffle and games held at the Santa Run and also the children’s running games/activities held in the park during the school holidays, all these events helped to raise the funds.

A spokesman said: “We are really pleased to announce the receipt of our new Defib.

“This is a brilliant piece of equipment with fully automated audio instructions when you open the lid.

“We have migrated one of the existing first aid kits in to the defib bag and its all ready to go.

“We will be ordering children sized defib pads in the coming weeks, this will be available at club sessions and races

“Hopefully we will never have the need to use this but we are fully equipped if we do.

“TCRC are next flying the flag at Boston in the Half and full marathon in 15th April.”
