Runners from March Athletic Club did not let the coronavirus pandemic stop them from completing their own virtual Whitemoor race this year.
The annual event sees the club host their mixed terrain five-mile family-friendly run, where members and other clubs start from March AC’s home at Elm Road, through HMP Whitemoor’s nature reserve and onto the Twenty Foot Bank.
However, determined not to let tradition pass, 23 March AC runners had nine days to run five miles with at least part of their route either through the nature reserve if possible, or to include an off-road section.
Toni Alcaraz took first place for the ladies with a personal best of 31:37, followed by first man home Luke Brown in 31:54.
