Three is the magic number at the Frosty Triple Series

The third day of the Frosty Triple Series run in Barrow raised money for CancerCare. 

Over 60 extremely brave and hardened runners took to the streets of Barrow yesterday in the third and final run of the Tri-Island Frosty triple series.

Despite the bitterly cold temperatures the runners took part in one of four distances: 5k, 10k, a half marathon and a full marathon. The club kindly worked in conjunction with CancerCare on the final day of the series to help raise awareness of the services in Barrow and Furness and to help raise vital funds for the charity.

Long standing volunteer and CancerCare supporter, Lee Knowles and Fundraiser, Emma Athersmith helped give out the medals, trophies and goodie bags at the finish whilst Head of Operations, Alison Stainthorpe (the Tam O’Shanter earned her an extra £20 in sponsorship!) and partner Tommy Lockhart took on the 10k challenge!

Very kindly, Tri-Island have donated on the day entry monies to CancerCare and there are more plans in the pipeline to work together in the future.

Emma Athersmith said “The event was superb. Despite being extremely frosty, everyone was in good spirits and it was a pleasure to work with Chris and all involved with the Tri-Island Running Club. Chris and I are sitting down in the New Year to discuss a dedicated CancerCare Barrow and Furness 10k event. Preferably when it’s slightly warmer! Watch this space for further details."
