Two of our total warriors came and conquered the Total Warrior course!! Pete and Jim Lambert well done!! Look at these amazing pictures!
Back to the place where it all began! This year new sponsors and new team members!! Continental have taken over from Adidas as the sponsors for this event, and we have a few new members joining the gang!
So we saw 2 teams of 8 and a duo(!) partake in this event totalling 50 laps!! Mention must go out to Sarah Black-Smith and Oli Parkinson who were the duo team totalling 14 laps altogether and on retiring they were second!!
In the TR team this year were:

“Try not to think of training as hard work. Don’t focus on how challenging the distance will be; enjoy yourself. Yes, get in as many miles as you can, keep climbing that ladder, but try not to worry if you come up short one day. Don’t lose sight of the fun.”
