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.

Its tomorrow!! If anyone fancies a scamper through Stocklands beautiful countryside please do join us in the morning.

At last nights committee meeting we had a discussion about the possibility of bringing back the monthly time trial (possibly a different course) or alternative formats - which would allow us to challenge ourselves against ourselves each month to help us improve.
We're going to talk about it again at the next committee meeting.
The club has machine of some sort that can do timing.
The biggest problem with a time trial format is finding someone to run it – in other words not to run each month but to do the timing instead and to work out the results (if that makes sense!)
Is there anyone within the club he might be willing to take this on? If not, we can still think about other formats which might include self timing or which don't necessarily require timing at all – the next question would then be how many would want to take part – but it's difficult to ask that – if we don't know what we are offering to do! Having a time trial or similar is an excellent way to challenge ourselves to run faster – Perhaps if we had a new format which started and finished on the Esplanade we could coincide this with the option of a regular monthly visit to the pub afterwards ?! (Although not necessarily for the juniors) I'm sure any volunteers would be greatly appreciated...

Hamish SpenceI like this idea. I suggest it's not compulsory though.

Kit Woodcockrem. I used the 'machine' for the time trials for several years - as a 'certified' AAA Grade 1 timekeeper + have my own watch etc. as used for 'negative' handicaps so get in touch should you need assistance - C

Emma SalterI'd be very keen to bring back some sort of time trial, or once a month challenge of sorts with a view to push ourselves and hopefully improve each time. Sorry I don't really have any ideas though 😂 but I'd definitely be wanting to run.

Thank you Jane for the lovely cake most wecome. ... See MoreSee Less

Paula FarrandSince taking up 'jogging round the village' in April, then progressing onto 'proper' running a few weeks ago when we joined the club, it was good to survive our first race wearing the mighty green! Bert Dykema

Finish line at last Saturday's Dartmoor high ground Marathon (inaugural race). Mighty green vest couldn't be seen, but not much could! with storm force weather and clag, more of a navigation exercise than a speed test. If you like fell races and the effect of running towards a fire hose on full blast- give it a go next year! 😬😊 ... See MoreSee Less
