THREE COUNTIES RUNNING CLUB: Magnificent seven take on Cambridge Saucony
PUBLISHED: 10:10 05 March 2018
After all the snow and ice during the week and parkrun’s being called off all across the country it was doubtful if the Cambridge Saucony Half Marathon would still go ahead.
But it seemed that in one day the weather changed from snow and ice to nothing on Sunday morning apart from a few showers and coldness.
Seven Three Counties Running Club Members took the early start to Cambridge on a bitterly cold start to the day to take part in an amazing event with massive support during the entire 13.1 miles.
The support from the small villages was amazing with sweets and cakes being offered by the locals, live music and even steel bands playing “feeling Hot hot hot”, which we all wished we were.
First TCRC member to finish bringing it home for the ladies was Elisabeth Sennitt-Clough in a fantastic personal best (PB) of 1:40:16 followed by husband Tim in 1:45:31.
Next home was Marc Martin 1:58:04, Debbie Agger in a fantastic PB of 2:00:48 knocking an incredible seven minutes off her last half-marathon time, Matt Hunter 2:04:43, Vicki Drake and Sarah-Jane Macdonald both crossing the line in 2:16:15.
