The Chairman’s Mighty Green on Holiday Challenge

The Challenge is to wear the Mighty Green in as many locations as possible with a prize for the wearer in the most far flung corner of the world. So far the Mighty Green has been seen from Spain to Japan, Gibraltar to Vietnam as well as around the UK from Dartmoor to the Highlands. It has even been seen flying proudly in the Baltic.

The Chairman’s Mighty Green Racing Challenge

The Challenge is for wearing the Mighty Green while competing in an organised race the furthest away from SIDMOUTH.

What a fantastic turnout of the Mighty Green tonight especially the new members resplendent in their new colours, and welcome to Julie who joined us tonight for the first time. Just a thought Lesley have you considered wearing your shirt on a Wednesday and washing it during the rest of the week instead of the other way round and Tim did I mention your licence?
Well done everbody GOOD JOB

Jo EarlamI think to do the 3 day coaching course, but leadership in running fitness day course is the entry level, no previous training necessary.

Rob returns from his latest injuries to knock two and a half minutes of last year time running the Jurassic Coast 10k on Saturday finishing in 50:30. I am not sure that he is fully recovered as he has entered the run in the Mighty Green racing challange. The challenge is a race the furthest from Sidmouth Rob not the nearest.
The race started in Budleigh.
A great result well done.
