Maidenhead Athletic Club (MAC) members competed for six teams across various running and walking distances in the Midsummer Multi Virtual team event last week.
Team members chose to compete in various disciplines, from 400m up to a half marathon, and even a 20k cycle and it was the Swiss Rollers team who took first place. Flapjack Fantastic were second and Tortoise and the Cake in third. Distance Rock Cakes, The Rocky Road Runners and Jammy Joggers also took part.
The Swiss Rollers began the event as underdogs to the Flapjack Fantastic but came through to win by the narrowest of margins.
James Fickling, captain of the Swiss Rollers said: “We all put on exceptional individual performances to win by the narrowest of margins:
“Sue’s flying 5K; Chloe battling through injury on her 400m; the Daves x 3 setting the road alight.
“Dante, Jude and Yuvraj our awesome Juniors; Nathan and Ros dusting off their bikes.
“Fran’s half marathon PB; the Eastens, Julie, Nicola, Lilli, Marion, Jen, Nick, Marc.
“Every team member laid it out there and exceeded expectations. Team work makes the dream work, GO ROLLERS.”
