This weekend Biggleswade Athletic Club will be competing in the 197 mile Round Norfolk Relay; a 24hr+ race of 17 stages, involving 56 teams from around the country. Ian Grimwood will lead the team off starting out from Lynnsport, in King’s Lynn, at around 6.30am on Saturday morning with wife, Juliet, hoping to bring the team safely back home at around 10.00am on Sunday morning.
Three Biggleswade AC members were among the thousands of runners taking part in the Great North Run last weekend, and despite the undulating course and extremely warm weather conditions, all three completed the 13.1 miles.
Biggleswade AC member, Ed Jones, completed the Chiltern Way 214K at the weekend – yes, that’s 133 miles in old money – finishing in 2nd place. A very tough trail race both in terms of terrain and navigation and most of the other competitors were unable to complete it.
