During these strange times one of the things that we’re thankfully all still allowed to do is exercise (albeit in limited numbers and in a ‘COVID secure environment’) and Tattenhall Runners have come up with a great way to keep members motivated by organising their own fell championships as a substitute for other races. Each month a few volunteers have devised bespoke routes around the local hills to be raced at any point during that month. The competition started in October and, at time of writing, runners have another few days to complete January’s route which, being over 20km in length and including 600m of ascent, is one of the toughest yet.
It’s been variably, wet, cold, muddy, icy and snowy but it’s kept us entertained, having fun and out training.
Hopefully we’ll be able to resume club meetings soon but, in the meantime, keep running and keep safe.
