We hope everyone had a great race at the final Runners Need G3.
Results will be available here shortly.
Now into it's 12th year the Runners Need G3 running series is well renowned
for its tough cross country routes. Nevertheless we are always surprised to hear that some athletes didn't realise it was hilly until
they've completed the event! It is very hilly, but an achievable challenge.
