Weekly Roundup 18th February 2021

Thank you to the ECR members who took part in the 4th virtual frostbite held last weekend. 81 seniors and 6 juniors got out over the weekend and whilst not actually frosty the wind certainly made it’s presence felt and meant your choice of route was more important than usual, but whichever way it was at some point into the wind we went! ECR seniors took 10thspot and the juniors were 13th. After 4 events the seniors lie on 4th overall and the junior’s 13th. Well done everyone. Once again ECR fielded the highest number of runners. The next one is on 13th / 14th March.

ECR @ Christmas 2021

Well, a lot can happen in a week as we’ve just found out which has curtailed all our plans, but at least we can still get out there and run, so go for it!

It looks like we won’t be back to club running sessions in January but I hope it’s not too long before we can get back together again. We will keep the club updated as soon as EA release further guidance.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy 2021. Take care all.

Weekly Roundup 5th November 2020

Diane Morris completed her 3rd Brathay 10 in 10 – 10 marathons in 10 days. Times were – from day 1 – 4hrs 45mins, 5:08, 5:06, 5:13, 5:19, 5:49, 6:07, 5:56, 5:47 and 5:34. Well done Diane. Many would be happy to log those times on just one marathon, never mind over 10 days.

‘Escape from Eye’ saw 10 teams including 7 from ECR run for a total of 24 hours to rack up miles and see who could get the furthest from Eye, virtually of course. In total the 10 teams clocked up 1183 miles. Well done everyone.

36 members took part in the Guesstimate held last week. Congratulations to Zoe Clarke who came closest to her estimated time by just 3 seconds.

Weekly Roundup 8th October 2020

Well done to the fourteen members who completed their virtual marathons last weekend with 13 taking part in VMLM with a further member a virtual Peterborough marathon. We also had Diane Morris, not content with one marathon at the weekend but 2!
