One of our dedicated members Roxi Rose has over the last few week put in some serious miles with her dogs Millie and Tyson.
The 13th March saw Roxi and Millie take part in the Lamer Tree marathon, they completed this hilly course in 4:28:17 coming 2nd in her age category.
Singing the praises of her running partner Roxi says "Millie was bloody amazing today as that was not easy. A dog really is the best running partner anyone can have -fact!" - we couldn't agree more!
On the 2nd of April Roxi ran the Checkendon Challenge 5k course with her 2 dogs in the 2 dog mixed class, this 5k course is challenging in a technical manner, but running this the day before the QECP - madness!
On the 3rd April Roxi and Millie competed in the Queen Elizabeth Country Park half marathon with Millie - the route takes you along the north downs way pure hills and clay.. Roxi admits to this being "one of the toughest half's I have done and the heat didn't help". She came 81st /200 people - which is awesome!
To say we are proud of Roxi would be an understatement - and of course her wonderful fur running partners :)
The NATBs will be keeping you up to date on their members, their dogs and events for the 2015/2016 Season. Hope you enjoy!
