As promised here are our winners for you all to admire with their medals and physio vouchers.
Firstly a special thanks to Glenn Thornton for setting up our virtual 5k, a bit of fun he said (yeah whatever Glenn), the idea was to invite our members to sign up for the event and then Glenn would sort each member into groups of 7 per team equally and fairly on their given 5k predicted time, each team was also allocated a team leader.
So well done to the 28 members who did sign up giving Glenn an easy start, the race started and finished at the rugby club and the idea was that the each teams leader would send their 1st runner off on one day then each member would complete their race on the following consecutive days, unfortunately the Queensbury weather played its part and Glenn managed to get the race licence extended with RunBritain to allow us to have over 5 weeks to complete finishing on the 14th Feb.
The winning team was the ‘Relay-istic Winners’ consisting of Mick Coe, Chris Hilliam, Jo Fortune, Graham Rhodes, Laura Taylor, Zoe Hipwell and Jane Passey.
A prize for the winning team was a free 40 minute physio session with Terri Mason for each member (thankyou Terri), Mick Coe and Terri also won a bottle of beer from Glenn’s vast stash for the fastest final sprint to the finish line.
Well done to all and we can look forward to the next one soon.
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.
Well done Michelle that’s truly awesome, YOU GO GIRL!!

Well done Steve
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’

Well done Neil, we hope you enjoyed your bath.
If any other members have done something running related they’re proud of drop us a message and we’ll make you famous.
