Easter Bunny 2021
Volunteer Tuesday evening Run Leader wanted: A couple of members have mentioned that it would be useful to have an additional Run Leader on Tuesday Club nights, running at 11-11.30 min mile pace. At the moment we don't have anything between 10.5 and 12 min/ml. Is there anyone out there willing to take a group at this pace? If so, please contact Guy who will add you to the Events Page on the website. If you don't feel confident to do it alone maybe there are two of you who could lead together as moral support for each other.
Thanking you in anticipation"
From Anita: So finally able to attend an organised event for #60. A great day out with Tara, although we missed our 3rd musketeer Lynne. The weather was typically British as freezing to start and blisteringly hot by the end. Many thanks to Davey for such a Covid safe event.
Well the Club Virtual Running started with the Easter Bunny last year and we did not think we would be doing it a Year later still with a lock down on most Races. Still Kev has got you all out running and I think this might be the most Club members that took part so far. Steve has also managed to do a YouTube Clip as well and you can view this from here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di8HnNUZcjc
From Andrew: Thanks for the running challenge. Not my fastest 10k, but I really enjoyed it! Lovely Easter morning. Beautiful countryside....and at approx 5.5 miles I had a "Come on Yeovil!" Happy Easter everyone!
From Marathon Mike: Easter Bunny virtual 10k, who would have thought a year ago we'd be doing it again? A nice cool morning, but with 20mph winds which hampered progress over the bridge. Coqina Beach to Bradendon Beach and over the intra-coastal for a lap around Cortez fishing village. Saw mother and baby dolphin on the way back and brown pelicans on the pier. Happy Easter all! Thanks as always Kev.
From Marie: Easter Bunny 10km completed. Thanks Kevin Doherty for yet another challenge. Was planning on running it tomorrow, but the weather looks rubbish and I’m glad I did. Beautiful out there.

Weekend Update SWCP
From Matt: The South West Coast Path Virtual Distance Route Yeovil Town Road Runners Club Participants - or as I call it the SWCPYTRRCP, which just happens to be Welsh for "smashing it", has reached the end of week 13. To finish by the end of the year at 1.75 miles per day, we should all have reached 160 miles by now. Statistically, Donna Reeves continues as our consistently most average YTRRC performer, Bungy Williams continues as our only finisher, Angela Claire continues as our "most likely not to log miles", dropping behind Tristram Clark as our only sub 100 mile participants - however, they remain numbers 1 and 2 on my list! Despite random heckling from her husband, Sara Driver is stuck on 109.75 miles a little past Hartland Quay. Kat Hurford is nearing Widemouth Bay (lovely place) at 125.22, and Lauren Jessica is at Treardock on 147.45. Shaun Powell is at the splendidly named Whipsiderry Beach on 185.16, while Nat Robins has reached Perran Sands at 198.18
At 209 miles, Matt Driver has reached Sally's Bottom. It's quite nice but not very accessible, and it can be sandy at times! Natasha Turner is at Godrevy Sands on 218.64, a golden beach run by the National Trust! Both Nichola Chesterton on 224.72, and Martin Alderman on 224.85 are sweeping around the River Hayle estuary, meanwhile Richard Clayton has reached Zennor at 235.24 Rachael Gosney is a good 20 miles further on and around the first "lug" on 258.64 at Penberth Cove, just a bay away from Mark Copping at Merthen Point on 259.76 Mel Cox is at 270.2 in Mounts Bay in sight of Claire Shucksmith just along the way on 271.07. Another leap, this time another ten miles along the SWCP catches up with Donna Reeves on 281.27 at Porthleven, and then Adam Hawkins on 284.88 at Gunwalloe Anita Garrett has passed Mullion Island and might be taking a rest at The Chair, a smaller rock off the coast at 290.06. A little further on at Predannack Head is Nick Cox on 290.79
Last week the route described up to 300 miles, so this week let's see the location of everyone else as they hurtle towards home:
