The Mighty Green Shirt Puts Sidmouth On The Map

Sidmouth Running Club’s Liz Wright and Jim Hudson completed the 9 Edge Challenge on the hottest day of the year in the Peak District!  The couple thoroughly enjoyed the stunning scenery and there was only one answer for Jim when someone said it was a long trip from Sidmouth to take part and that was why not!

Further afield Adrian ‘Gripper’ Horne took the opportunity to wear his Mighty Green shirt whilst travelling through Switzerland to Italy. Gripper decided to do some high, high altitude training up in the Alps!

Closer to home a few club members including two juniors, Jack (wearing the new Junior SRC t-shirt)and Amelia, took part in the Sidbury Fun Run. Although according to Emma Grainger it wasn’t much fun as it was very hot, very hilly with much walking!  Despite this Emma, along with the others, enjoyed the views and the finishers pottery bowl made it all worthwhile.
