Members of Terrington St Clement Running Club (TSCRC) have been lacing up their shoes and hitting the road in recent weeks, participating in long-distance races across the country.Founded three years ago to promote fitness and friendship through running, the club embraces runners of all abilities and offers inclusive Couch to 5k sessions for beginners while also providing support and encouragement for more experienced runners.Eight members joined more than 18,000 others at the London Landmarks Half Marathon on April 7.Their fundraising efforts included initiatives such as selling donated goods from a charity cart in Hay Green and hosting a popular tombola stall outside the local Co-Op store.The runners from Terrington were: Jake Whitehouse (1:49), Alan Bartrum (1:50), Catherine Swann (2:07), Adrian Pepper (2:11), Claire Whitehouse (2:14), Adam Sherrard (2:39) and Holl Little (2:40). Linda Pepper, recovering from an operation just a few weeks earlier, walked the full course in 3:41.A week later, TSCRC member Adrian Pepper took on the challenge of the 26.2-mile Manchester Marathon, tackling the UK’s second-largest marathon in 4:47. One week later, back in London, the historic 2024 London Marathon saw TSCRCs Martin Stevens (2:58), Jake Whitehouse (3:48) and Pauline Drewery (4:28) conquer the gruelling 26.2-mile course from Blackheath to The Mall.Last weekend and closer to home, the Norfolk Marathon in Cromer attracted more than 1,000 participants, with TSCRCs Alan Bartrum (4:48) and Tony Chisam (4:48) running together to take on the wind, rain, and Norfolk hills with determination. At the same time in Boston, Lincolnshire, braving the elements were Helen Garrett (2:10) and Claire Whitehouse (2:15) competing in the half marathon and Jamie Bransgrove (4:43) and Adrian Pepper (5:02) in the full marathon.As the club prepares for the upcoming GEAR run this weekend, anticipation is high as members aim to have more runners at the event, proudly donning their signature blue and yellow club shirts.
