‘Go out and enjoy yourselves’ was the message for Three Counties Running Club members in their latest lockdown challenge.

Members were on the lookout for 30 items, from a church to a garden gnome, while they were out running, walking or cycling, organised by club member Kim Coultard.

With no times or pace required, the pressure was off as members could take part in the challenge on their own or in a small group while adhering to government guidelines.

Although some struggled to find some of the items, the challenge was still great fun for all.

Twenty TCRC members have played a part in helping to raise funds for the NHS by completing the virtual ‘do what you can’ run. It was a great achievement personally and as a club to be part of and play a part in doing something positive for others whilst running.
