TBH Virtual 5K Handicap Race

For the latest virtual challenge, TBH members took part in a 5K Handicap run.

:thumbsup: GROUP 3 :thumbsup:


But it was a close run thing, with 33 seconds separating the four competing groups, and every group improving their average 5k time compared to previous virtual races.

Thanks to everyone who took part :good:
