Club Trip: Vilnius 2017

Congratulations to all our runners at this year’s club trip! This year’s destination was the beautiful city of Vilnius in Lithuania. The event was host to races of various distances from Marathon to the unusual distance of 4.2k. Our runners went mostly for the Half Marathon, and two smashed the full Marathon. However, it wasn’t all about the running, as we enjoyed some excellent tourism which included a visit to the Vilnius Museum of Illusions!

Thank you to Audinga Andruskeviciute, one of our members who is from Vilnius and was an excellent tour guide for our team. Also thanks to Tony Wilson, who took many pictures and made a fantastic film of our trip (below).

Special congratulations to Laura Chesham who achieved a fantastic half marathon personal best. She achieved this despite suffering some nasty injuries after a fall during the race.
