Racing in Devon. Race Results
For those that have done a few Whitestar Races or Phoenix ones will know Jenny Lipton, well she with there better half Tim have set up RED Running just outside Exmouth on a tarmac railway line, so nice and flat. This weekend saw their first event with a Race on Saturday and Sunday, both timed events, 7 hours and you do as many 3.75 miles out and backs as you want, with 4 being a Half and 8 a Marathon. Saturday saw Anita, JC, Mark and I do the Marathon and today Lynne popped down to Devon. The results are in and Mark was second and I was third. As this is an out and back you get to see all the runners every lap, this made it possible to get two "Come on Yeovil" to Anita, this made her very happy.
The Park Run is Back
Well after over a Year and a Half Park Runs are finally back with Club members travelling to Weymouth, Shepton, Henstridge and Upton.

So are the Pub Runs
From Mark: PUB RUN – ASH (22nd July 2021)
Our first pub run in more than 16 months (The last one was at Stoford on 12th March 2020). Six of us (Phil, Guy, J.C. Anita, Sue and myself) met at the Bell Inn. Sue led four of us (Sue, Anita, J.C. and myself) on a run down into Martock, part on road and part off road. We did a loop of the recreation ground, then ran out to fields at the back of the church. J.C. and myself split off and ran out to Coat, then back via Stapleton and Highway making exactly 6 miles. Warm with bright sunshine, the run and pub experience was great.
Stoke Gabriel 10k
From Lesley: A lovely morning for a race in the countryside at Stoke Gabriel 10k ish (7.6 ml). Well not so much a race, more of a run/walk/stop to admire the views/take photos . It's a very sociable race raising money for local community causes. No medal but a bacon buttie and a pint of cider supplied by sponsors of the race. The terrain is varied from getting wet feet running along the river, climbing hills through fields and up rocky lanes, not forgetting steps up, as well as a few easier stretches on country roads.
Westonbirt House 10k
From Kevin: Very hot race tonight at Westonbirt House 10k at Tetbury. 2 lap mixed terrain course finishing in front of the stately house. Time 47.45.
Runners go Cycling
From Jo: While not the longest ride I have done, it has to go down as the steepest, hilliest ride I have ever done. It nearly finished me but with the amazing support & encouragement of Graham Still Robert Adams Yunmi Jang Jeff Watson & Beryl Chung I made it. Thank you all I couldn’t have done it without you.

A big show of appreciation to Linda Membury who has seen me through a lot of these miles, both the good & the bad . Finally a heart felt thanks to my forever patient, caring & supportive boyfriend, despite him still thinking i am mad “we have 2 cars you know??!!” Triss Samuel
