It was a busy weekend for DRR with a large showing at both the Beachy Head and Love Luton events.
First to Beachy Head.. 30 brave souls took the journey to the south coast to take part in the 10k and Marathon events. These are events that makes our Dunstable Downs Challenge look flat! Both events start up a great big hill that had people scrambling on hands and knees to get up (the good news is that you finish down this same hill). It’s an ‘undulating’ route with views out over the cliffs to the English Channel – and on sunny day like Saturday those views were breathtaking. It clearly is one that captures your heart as many of those 30 are already looking to book next year (and are on a recruitment drive to make it even bigger and better!)
Closer to home on Sunday saw the Love Luton 10k and Half Marathon. Now in it’s 5th year for the Half and inaugural 10K it was also popular with DRR. Starting at Stockwood Park and then heading our over the hills towards Luton Hoo before heading back for a town centre finish. With 7 taking part in the 10k and 25 in the Half Marathon there were some fantastic performances. A special shout out to Lee Murphy who took part in both the Beachy Head 10k and Luton Half!
So whether you are looking for something close to home or a bigger challenge a little further away the amazing support of DRR will make sure that wherever you go you won’t be alone!
