    This event is for ladies of all ages and abilities, in 2006 our youngest participant was just five years old! You can also take part if using a wheelchair although we would recommend that you do a companion to accompany you around the course as it does get very busy.

    We have a picnic in the park afterwards and there is coach transportation from the MSRC office in Colchester.

    For further details and to book your place on the team for 2010, call Sam on 01206 505444 or email: [email protected]

    adidas Women's 5K Challenge 2010

    adidas Women’s 5K Challenge
    Sunday 5th September 2010

    With the threat of rain looming in the sky, the first weekend of September saw around 15,000 ladies descend on Hyde Park for the 13th annual adidas Women’s 5K Challenge.

    With some of the fastest female runners in the world, celebrities and women of all ages and abilities, the TeamMSRC ladies and MaximuS, the lovable MSRC mascot started the morning with an aerobic warm up before lining up at the start.

    Cheered on by family, friends and of course, MaximuS, the ladies were off.

    Some made a swift start in the first group with the fastest runners; others pacing themselves nearer the back. But regardless to their start, all had a fantastic race enjoying the electric atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings.

    The cold wind put a stop to our team picnic but everyone was happy with their times and the impressive loot in the goody bags.

    Thank you to all our runners and their cheering teams for coming down on the day. We hope you had a good day – we certainly did.

    TeamMSRC ladies will be back again in September 2011 – hoping to be bigger then ever before! If you interested in booking your place on the team, please contact Sam at [email protected] or phone the office on 01206 505444.
