Local club enjoy weekend event with captain Gurjit Singh Bansal confident it will live long in the memory

Harold Wood Running Club took on, and successfully saw off the testing Spitfire Scramble 24-hour endurance race held in Hornchurch Country Park last weekend.

It was the first time the club had competed in the event, but the efforts of 12 athletes saw them rack up 302.4 miles throughout the day.

The athletes were all cheered on by members, who provided plenty of food and drink to keep them going for the gruelling challenge.

Captain Gurjit Singh Bansal said: “This was truly the most testing, yet most rewarding challenge that we have done as a club and individuals, one we shall never forget.

“It was such a great weekend full of many memorable moments.

“We all worked together pushing and encouraging each other to test our body’s to the limit!

“I can see this becoming one of the club’s favourite events of year, it was a great learning experience and we have learnt a lot.”
