Interest is building in the Women Can Marathon that takes place from Tipton St John on May 28th, passing through Sidmouth. Sue Cunningham is hoping to put a team of 4 SRC ladies together, to run relay distances of between 5.5 and 7.8 miles. Go on, you know you want to! Photo is of a recent double page spread that appeared in the Plymouth Evening Herald. If you can't run, how about helping please.

I managed to finish my first ultra yesterday 🙂 With my sister I ran the 30 mile Punchbowl 'Marathon' whilst my husband, daughters (12&11) and nephew (10) walked the parallel 20 mile event. It is a self-navigated LDWA event in the Surrey Hills, ending by running the rim of the Devil's Punchbowl. The weather was not ideal : cold and foggy with snow on the ground between the patches of mud, but it didn't actually snow on us, which was a bonus. We finished in 6hr40, with about 40mins spent noshing at cps, making us joint 7th females home (though LDWA events are most emphatically NOT races!). By quirk of routes and timing we passed the walking crew twice which was a boost to the spirits ! ... See MoreSee Less
NB the SRC t-shirt attracted a lot of attention: it seems that everyone has a connection to E Devon.
Brilliant Carine The Exe to Axe will be a doddle after that

I would just like to thank you all for your kind comments and for a fantastic day on Sunday. Robert and I feel quite honoured being entrusted with the running of the 4 Trigs event. As you all appreciate, it would not be possible without a brilliant backing team of Marshalls and tea/coffee helpers (none of us runners) !!!! All competitors really entered into the spirit of the day as usual, and it is due to that positive, appreciative attitude that we are happy to come back again and organise another year. Thank you so much. ... See MoreSee Less

Get in ! 2 places better than last year !
Well done all.
And I am still hobbling around today, every time I sit down there is a real danger I won't get back up!
Brilliant all of you!
Well done to all of you!
Excellent results! My quads are ruined though. I can run upstairs but I'm like a poorly articulated robot walking back down again. I'm really excited for the Grizzly now.
A true runners comment.
