Love at first sight for runners in virtual Valentine's race

It was love at first sight this year as two running clubs came together for Valentine’s Day.
As the traditional Stamford Valentine’s 30k was cancelled, Three Counties and Fenland running clubs joined forces in a virtual relay, where 27 teams across the two clubs competed against each other.
This was the first time in over a year both clubs came face-to-face with one another due to Covid-19 restrictions, and both teams had to complete the race over the weekends of February 13-14 or February 20-21.
TCRC’s Team Mop and Balds claimed first place in 2:06:28 ahead of FRC’s SpongeBob Slow Pants in 2:13:42, while Lee Johnson and Vicki Newton finished first male and female for Three Counties.
Runners are taking part in the Route 66 challenge and can look ahead to other tests, too.
