Optima 1, 2, 3 at G3

Optima Racing Team were out in full force at the G3 off road trail run in Surrey last weekend. The G3 is known for its notoriously hilly, difficult and lung busting courses.

We were greeted with some rather challenging conditions – lots of snow and even more mud. At times, the course felt more like an assault course than a running race but great fun was had by all.

The team did pretty well too, picking up a 1,2,3 plus another 1! Rory Atkins won the race overall and was the first senior male. Luke Penney picked up 3rd overall and 3rd senior male. Gill Sanders and Charlie  Hammon were 2nd lady and 1st male veteran respectively.

After a change into some clean clothes, we headed across the road to the café where we enjoyed a well deserved English breakfast and reminisced over the morning’s run. It was then off down the road to Surrey Sports Park where we enjoyed a lovely swim in their snazzy, spanking new 50m pool. A morning well spent!
