Nitsch is still go­ing strong at Wer­ring­ton

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sports -

MANY peo­ple like to take things a lit­tle eas­ier when they reach the age of 60 but not Wer­ring­ton Jog­gers vicechair­man Bob Nitsch.

When Nitsch reached that mile­stone last year he de­cided he would run 52 half-marathons - one for ev­ery week of the year - in a 12-month pe­riod.

Some of his out­ings over 13.1 miles have been races but many have been train­ing runs and some of his Wer­ring­ton club­mates joined him as he com­pleted the task ontues­day night.

Nitsch said: “It was just a lit­tle chal­lenge be­tween me, age and past glo­ri­ous years . . . and hope­fully a few more to come!”
