Rose and I will be there!

I'm volunteering this week- wear your mighty greens and I'll cheer you on!! X

Thanks Debbie but away this wk end.

Hi Debbie, what time is it on Saturday? Xx

9 am start on Sea front

It's a flat 5k ( a couple of stretches on shingle) really nice atmosphere and very mixed ability from the super speedy to the walkers. Unfortunately no dogs. You need to register before the first time on parkrun website and print off your barcode.

The park run at Killerton allows dogs. We can have an outing there one week too

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
