Ronnie and Wendy completed the “Quest” which meant running 5 x 5k’s (starting on the hour from midday to 4pm!) and a 10k evening run on Saturday followed by a half marathon on Sunday morning. The event took place at Marston Lodge Farm near Clipston. Every route was challenging: each 5k was a different trail route which got progressively tougher and the 10k incorporated elements of the 5k routes, same with the HM but with a few steeper climbs thrown in! The idea was that the six fastest male and female runners then took part in a mile race to win the golden carrot. Wendy finished in the top 6 females and wasn’t too thrilled at running another mile within 15 minutes of finishing the HM but she did it!!
