It's a Stickler
Marine Corp Marathon
Well done to Bryn on completing the Marine Corp Marathon and getting a PB, fitting he should do that today as the Royal Marines have their 364th Birthday 1664 Oct 28th
From Bryn: I came here with one mission and that was to knock 4mins off my PB and get 2.45.
I did more than that, I smashed 7 mins off and finished in 2.42. Apologies if I don't reply to messages as I am in the hurt locker as the yanks say and having waves of emotion going through me at the moment.
The following either need to pay or collect their Calendar, I will be there on Tuesday Club Night and also the Pub Run on Thursday. Yes means you have paid.

From Louise Ward: Herepath Half today. Lovely scenic route and well organised. I would recommend it as long as you don't mind having a memento instead of s medal 🤨. Well done to Lesley for knocking several minutes off last year's time and being first YTRRC lady and I was last lady or more kindly 2nd as there were only 2 of us!
A few of us met at 8:30 for a 14-16 mile run down Sutton Bingham, up the little hill then around Hardington and back to Goldenstones. Thanks to Graham and Gary for organising this and the route, for a couple it was the furthest they have run and that's just what the Sunday Long runs are about. Well done all.
Beachy Head Marathon
From Mark Pike: I now believe Beachy Head Marathon is the race that set the benchmark as the perfect marathon for other races to emulate. I am now going to break my “ only race each marathon once policy” Stunning route, best feed stations I have ever seen, a lot of marshals on a very well signposted course ....... fantastic!
The Stickler Photographs
From Kev: Yeovil Town RRC were out today to tackle the Stickler 10 miler. This technical mmulti-terrainhilly and more hilly.
Ever so gradually, and ever so slowly, the morning light eased the night aside and crossing the lowlands the mist rose making trees appear wraith-like in the gloom. A murder of crows, perhaps fifty strong, perched silently in rows along the telegraph wire waiting for the sun to rise and warm their iridescent black feathers.
But enough of that... our runners all did fantastic .. Richard Greengrow did his first race in Club vest ... Richard Dodge disguised as a Badger ... outings of those chasing hats Andrew Brown.😊
Steve Lye was our first runner home with Kate Farraday first female... a posse of tired runners descended to The Old OX in for great food and company organised by Katie Brooks Well done all👍
Shepton Mallet 10k
From Sue Mallinson: Shepton Mallet 10k, a challenging course in fairly windy conditions, a great effort from YTRRC, 6 members in all. Kay crossing the finish line.
From Linsay: Hi All. Our Pub Run is on Thursday 29th November at The Rose and Crown at Bradford Abbas. I know its a little way off but as its pre-orders, I thought I would let you see the menus so you can have a think and order if you want before then. Thursday night is Steak night, its £19.95 for two so let me know how you want it cooked when you order and if you are ordering with someone for the offer. 29th is the night before Awards Night so a nice little local jolly the night before to discuss our wears for Fri night should be a good laugh. Please be at pub and ready to run for 6.30 pm. Mary, the Landlady wants orders no later than Sunday 25th November.
From Adam: Many thanks once again to the wonderful YTRRC members who were able to help with today's primary schools' cross country races.

PUB RUN – GALHAMPTON (25th October 2018)
Six of us (Tim, J.C. Me, Louise, Anita, and Sue) were led by J.C round and 6.5-mile route tonight. Clouds, no moon, and darkness limited what could be seen. A few dogs were heard barking, but none followed us this time. We headed off through the village and this time turned left before reaching North Cadbury. We ran along Corkscrew lane and went wrong for a short while at Woolston. Correcting, we headed towards Maperton and turned left at the far junction. We re-grouped at the next junction and ran down into Yarlington passing a pub. We continued westward passing farms in the darkness. For a while, the road became wet and muddy. We ran past the Manor House in Galhampton. Opposite there were 3 large white concrete balls on a grass triangle, a bit like out of the “Prisoner”. We continued through the village and reached the main road and pub. Thanks, J.C. and all, it was a quick run. After dinner, we had Kev’s birthday cake.
