TRC Chairman’s Blog – August 2014
Well, where do I start? So much has happened over the last few months!

We had an amazing success with the Inter Inns race in June with more runners than expected and a great atmosphere. We managed to become a part of the Tidza Wakes festivities calendar and the Inter Inns is a wonderful race in its own right.

In July we had a great day at the TRC family picnic in the grounds of Chatsworth, with food, fun and games and the most fun game of rounders ever.

Club Championship

The club championships have been a closely fought competition with Andrew Watkins being “Mr Consistent”.

We have had numerous other successes from our great club’s runners.

Sheldon Fell Race

Dan Allen of TRC winning his class at Sheldon fell RaceThe races have been fun social events with an impressive turnout from the runners and of course, the fabulous TRC support team!

At Sheldon Fell race Dan Allen came 1st in his age category and 14th overall, which is a fantastic effort when you consider that Dan had been injured for most of the spring and this was his first competitive race for months.

Well done Dan!

Taddington Lanes Race

We had an outstanding turnout at Taddington Lanes Race with 13 club members racing and lots of supporters. We created an amazing air of excitement, camaraderie and inclusion.
