March Athletic Club runners were out in their running vests and racing shoes to mark two major events.
Four members took part in the ‘Duxford Dash’ on Sunday, September 13, organised by the Imperial War Museum at Duxford in honour of the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
The site was large enough to allow runners to socially distance throughout the 5k and 10k races. Melissa Neal impressed for March, finishing as fifth female overall and first in her age category in the 10k.
On the same day, Pat Norris was due to take her starting place in the 40th edition of the Great North Run, but instead of enjoying the north-east scenery, she decided to run around March.
Pat, 71, was spurred on around the course and met fellow club runners and family members, replacing a run over the Tyne Bridge with a finish line over the bridge on Marylebone Road, across the River Nene and into West End Park.
