Ladies Running Group complete 10 mile challenge in Portsmouth

Some 36 members of the Ladies’ Running Group section of Rugby & Northampton AC made the journey to Portsmouth to take part in the 10 mile Great South Run last weekend.

With the majority running this distance for the first time there were a few nerves pre race as they lined up amongst 25,000 elite, club and fun runners taking part on a glorious sunny day in Portsmouth.

The sunshine ensured that supporters were out in force all around the 10 mile scenic course to cheer on the runners every step of the way with all the ladies completing the full 10 miles.

The group had been training for the event over the past 10 weeks and the well deserved post race celebrations continued late into the night.

The Ladies’ Running Group caters for all ages and abilities from beginners to marathons.
