FIVE members of Rutland Running Club completed the Turkey Trot half marathon at Keyworth on Sunday.
The race has become incredibly popular over the last few years, reaching capacity within a few days of entries opening. The route follows a tough course around Keyworth and surrounding villages including a punishing hill at the half way point.
Rutland’s runners again put in a good performance with Chris Jones and Paul Rogerson following on from their recent Rutland Water marathon attempt, finishing in 1:39:51 and 1: 48:45 respectively.
Zoe Smith finished in sixth position with an excellent time of 1:30:41 while fellow triathletes Mary Hardwick and Gail Warner completed the course dressed in Father Christmas costumes, finishing in 1:53:05.
Elsewhere, Lara Kristiansen completed the Nene Valley 10 mile race in a time of 1:10:00, giving her an excellent eighth position among the women runners in a large field of athletes.
