Set up by a few Scottish folk last year the Marcothon is a challenge of determination and dedication to run(no walking allowed) every day in December for at least 25mins or 3 miles, there’s no medals, no prizes, just the satisfaction that you’ve achieved the end goal.
Michelle Shepherd took on the challenge and managed to finish on the 31st December roared home by all her running friends who joined her on her last run.

This position has recently become vacant following the resignation of Mr Stephen Brook.
We thank Steve on behalf of everyone for his past commitment to the Committee as well as being an active Run Leader, and I am sure that Steve will continue to support the club whenever and wherever he can going forward, especially with the many races that he completes.
The role of Chairperson is to lead the Committee and ensure that
the responsibilities of each particular Committee member are met.
This is an exciting period and turning point for our club, and
one where the Chairperson will play a strategic role in representing the vision
and purpose of Queensbury RC, facilitating change where necessary.
Could you be the one that makes all the difference?
Please consider putting yourself forward to assist the Committee and Running club to continue to prosper. This role would be on a temporary basis as all roles are up for re-election at the Annual General Meeting.
1 of our runners took on the ‘Tommy10k’ in aid of the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) a challenge that needed grit and determination to complete, the challenge itself consisted of running 10k a day for 10 days consecutively, nicknamed the ‘Special Forces Challenge’ Neil Windle completed the challenge on 2nd November and we managed to catch up with Neil after his final 10k.
‘It was tough out there, but not as tough as what our hero’s had to go through and what some are still going through today. Day 7 was the hardest a Friday evening in the rain, I even managed to fit in a quick half marathon on day 9, Thankyou to all my fans for their support and well wishes from QRC members. I managed to raise a fantastic £260, now where’s that warm bath’
Yeah well done lad that’s excellent, you can still donate to Neil’s challenge no matter how small by following the link below
