Three club members took part in the 3 Forts marathon last Sunday, known as the ‘Tough One’ with 27 miles of mixed terrain and climbs of 3450 feet across the South Downs starting in Worthing, West Sussex. Katie McCarter finished in 4:44:38 (164th and 14th in her age category), Amanda Bashford finished in 5:29:36 (282nd and 46th in her age category) and Helen Weeden finished in 5:50:59 (322nd and 60th in her age category, her third marathon in 3 months). Well done ladies!
