A Great Send Off
Well Friday came and Pete's funeral was very well attended by the Club, family, friends, and runners form some of the other local Clubs. It was an honor to carry the Coffin with Steve Warren, Paul Card and Fez and during the service, Lindsay read a poem and Steve read the Eulogy. After the Service, we all went to the Airfield Tavern for the Wake and to celebrate Pete's life.
Blackmore Vale Half
From Kev: Blackmore Vale Half today where a decent crowd of YTRRC members were in attendance
Very cold start to the day and changes to course layout .. ( due to dangerous Icy section of Road) meant it was approx 1 mile short ☹.
Samantha Lloyd and Shaun Powell opted for the relay ... whilst Steve Lye found his mojo getting a 13.1 PB running on after the finish to add a mile .. 1:26 I believe 👍 First YTRRC male. Jeff Watson ran a consistent pace and was 2nd YTRRC male with Luke Hicks representing Vegan Runners a little behind.
Sharon Hardy was poorly ... and let Tim Willis out on his own .. he admitted he struggled having not been too well. Caroline Watts ran very well and was first YTRRC Lady heading home in front of Magdalena Kusmierczyk who has the tail end of lurgy.. and our fine Chairman Malcolm Maxted was also I'm attendance.
Great day out and s little " Road Trip" with friends. This is a long established event .. undulating hilly ... on rural lanes and Roads and some support on the route with about 4 water stations on route.

We had two groups running tonight,
1st group 8mile run lead by Steve Lye and myself headed off in to the snow storm, we 1st headed off down Hendford and went west along Lysander road, doing the loop of Yeovil, up Bunford Lane past the football club and along Thone Lane, towards Mudford Road, then turned right down Lyde Road, hit a hard right at the end to continue along Sherborne Road, on to Reckleford road, then through the underpass on to Princes Street, then on to the homeward stretch back towards The Manor,
The 2nd Group 5miles lead by Anita Fajita, with Louise and Jade, headed off towards the hospital, along Princes St and turned right along Reckleford Road, and done a loop de loop along Lyde Road, Cavalier Way, Runnymead Road, Bucklers Mead, Monmouth Road, then down St Michaels Road, back on to Sherborne road, heading back along Reckleford, and along Princes St to finish back at The Manor,
Both groups finished at the same time, running the last 100 Meters together.
