They were not able to take on the usual Round Norfolk Relay event (RNR), but Three Counties Running Club members jumped at the chance to take part in this year’s virtual run.
The RNR usually covers 198 miles divided into 17 unequal stages ranging from 5.49 to 19.67 miles, where teams have 24 hours to complete the relay which starts and finishes at King’s Lynn.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, the event, which takes in the sights of the likes of Hunstanton, Cromer and Thetford, was reduced to a mini challenge with seven legs covering 53 miles.
TCRC along with March Athletic Club fielded five teams for the event and was a way of getting both clubs involved and focused.
