This weekend saw a group of CoSARC athletes competing at Endure 24 in Henley, which is a 24 hour endurance race consisting of 5 mile laps in teams or solo. There was also a mid-week race on Wednesday where three CoSARC athletes took part in the Lakeside 5k, with Samantha Noyce achieving a personal best.
Endure 24 this year was in a new location and consisted of mixed terrain from uneven grassy ground to paths, they also had to contend with changeable weather conditions. There were some creative team names and some fantastic results and achievements with CoSARC team Only Fools and Plodders bagging 1st place in the mixed team category, completing 40 laps between them.
CoSARC athletes Jon Greenhalgh and Vasen Moodley also did a great job volunteering at the event this year.
