RSE Virtual European Tour – Week 1 Update

On Wednesday 8th July Running Somewhere Else members departed Cirencester on a virtual European city tour. 

Split into two teams, The Euro Trailblazers and The Euro Globetrotters, over 40 runners are now making their way around various Northern European cities recording both walking & running mileage throughout July as we race from city to city.

Each leg of the journey will have a theme for members to provide photo’s or selfies and there are a few secret challenges planned for runners/walkers to earn bonus miles for their team.

Leg 1 – 

Departing Cirencester on Wednesday morning the first leg was a short hop of 91 miles to London. The theme for this leg was a simple photo containing something Red, White & Blue.

First into the capital, late on Thursday afternoon, were the Globetrotters closely followed, just in time for breakfast, on Friday morning by the Trailblazers. 

Leg 2 – 

Following a short refuelling stop both teams are now well on their way through the 266 mile leg 2 heading south towards Paris. 

On Saturday evening the Globetrotters had pulled into a handsome lead of over 50 mile however a strong performance from the Trailblazers on Sunday meant that the teams closed the week out just 12 miles apart, both expected to be in Paris before the close of play on Monday 13th July…

For this leg members have been tasked to provide images of things which are obviously French.
