Over 150 club runners take on EHM

 

It’s the day they’d all been waiting for. The runners of WRC were like children at Christmas, eager to open their presents to see what lay in store for them…

For some the English Half Marathon is like a religion, a date firmly slotted into their diary each year, for others this is where their puple b'srunning journey begins.  Some of the members have been training for this day for months, their first race, and their first medal that they will cherish for years.

 

The festivities started on Saturday afternoon when some WRC members took to the ‘run it, find it and answer it’ Live Wire challenge. We are proud to say Holly Blakemore, Michala Donal and Paul Howarth won tickets to watch the fabulous Pixie Lott perform at the Warrington Festival.

 

As the runners lined up, three minutes to nine in the morning on that foggy September day the crowd was painted a sea of jennaprimrose and blue. The Warrington Running Club logo lay printed on their heart , and so they set off into the distance.

 

Many PB’s were broken for both the 10k and the Half Marathon distances, some had a good run some did not, but through thick and thin they stuck together and supported each other .

 

The support didn’t just take place on the course. Jenna Taylor was top cheerer when people needed it most while Nicola Dunbabin and Maggie Yates manned the WRC tent, giving out some treats to the fabulous runners and friends.

To round of a wonderful day some completed the Live Wire 1 mile run with their family and friends. Paul Corless and Nige Taylor even managed to bounce around the route on space hoppers.

 

Another wonderful day of memories built by the Warrington Running Club Family.
