Sunday saw the 5th running of the Bury to Clare Challenge, this event being in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care. Starting at Nowton Park and finishing in Clare Castle Country Park the route follows the Bury to Clare footpath, all 18.5 miles of it. The weather could not have been better being warm and sunny with the rain over the last few days just making the ground slightly less hard. The event comprises of walkers who set off at 0900hrs with the runners setting off at 1030hrs.
Six Pacers took part with our lead runner being Tom Kingsnorth, the Webb family Vince and Sandra, they even took cucumber sandwiches with them (for that well known cucumber energy boost), Steph Brownhill, Rita Rue, Phil Nutley and Caroline Holland. Next year it would be nice to see more Pacers enter this well run and enjoyable local event, either walking or running?
