Committee Meeting

We managed to have a meeting this week using Zoom and hopefully the minutes will be posted on the website and on Facebook soon, it is hoped to do the same next month.

Land's End to John O Groats - Virtual Run 2020

Well there are now a fair few from the Club that have signed up for this and we are now a week in.  I have just left Cornwall and now in Devon with an 84 mile week, there is no way I will keep this up. 

From Dave: Week 1 of the #RUNLEJOG2020 complete and I've managed to run 70.51 miles. It's been a fun week that has certainly been helped by the weather, albeit a bit too hot at times. Great to see so many club members entered. I'm no Bungy Williams and so I don't think that 70 miles per week is sustainable for me, will probably end up averaging closer to 50 I reckon.

VE Day Virtual 10k

Thanks to Kev for getting this off the ground and to all those that took part

From Marathon Mike: Just back from my VE Day 10k run, a 5k out and back along a cloudy windswept beach in unusually cool weather. No watch, no Strava, no club shirt (I wore a Union Jack shirt), no photos, no awards. Just an opportunity to remember those who gave so much 75-80 years ago, very atmospheric on the beach for me as my dad was one of those evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940 on a small fishing boat. Thanks for the motivation Kev.

From Andy Brown: 10 virtual walk for VE Day down to Pitney and back.... it's a pity the Halfway House is closed!

From Yunmi: #75 VE day 10k run done with little riders!! Proud of big girl Seri-Ann for leading along and 4 yrs old Sean for his big push all the way ( with little bit of mum's push )! All in all, we've done it as a team!!😊

From Anita: VE Day 10K complete. Bumped into Robert who managed to talk me into running up that damn hill!!! Why am I so easily persuaded? πŸ€·πŸ»‍♀️ It was hot, it was slow, it was tough but it was done!

From Angela: VE day 10k done. Was a bit more than 10k and I fell over at the end πŸ€¦‍♀️ turns out cuticle removers make really good first aid tools πŸ€£ prior to that I'd enjoyed some beautiful miles of trail and walked through the field of cows.
