There were 36 club members over 6 Parkruns this week.
This weekend was dominated by The 2019 Conti Thunder Run, a 24-hour endurance race in Catton Park, Derbyshire. There were 19 members of NOTFAST running in either relay teams, pairs or running solo around the 10K cross country course, completing as many laps as possible in the 24-hour time period*. The event started at noon on Saturday and finished midday on Sunday with a mix of heat, rain, mud and perserverance. As always, it continues to be a fantastic event with an even better atmosphere.
In Total, Notfast clocked up 990 km over the 24 hours with a total combined running time of just over 165 hours.
