Yeovil Do Manchester
Greater Manchester Marathon Full Results
Sunday saw the Manchester Marathon with 4 YTRRC runners making the trip up North. With 12,000 other runners, it is a flat fast course with great support. Kev Brittle was first over the line but nearly did not make it as a sniper took him out with 200m to go and he fell to the floor with Cramp, luckily someone jumped over the fence and helped him and got him on his way and Kev managed to get a sub 3:15 for his GFA for London next year. I followed a minute after and met Kev then walked to pick up our T-Shirt and medal, the Sniper got Kev again and he fell to the floor in pain, both legs took a hit and the First Aiders were called in. He was taken to the First Aid tent where he was sorted and I made use of the chairs and took the mickey out of Kev.
Lynne was our first lady with Georgina not far behind.
From Lynne: Pleased with today’s run, fastest marathon run for well over a year. Nice to pace with Georgina, then the 5.00 pacer. Good to catch a fleeting glance of Kev and Guy as they sped past in other direction. Great crowd support, good weekend
Taunton Marathon Full Results
The 35th Year of this local Full and Half marathon.
From Carl: A great day out running the Taunton Half Marathon today. There were about 6 Yeovil Town Road Runners in Taunton today. It was a brilliant course, well marshalled with plenty of welcome support from local residents. The route was relatively flat ...only minor ups & downs with the 2 biggest hills coming towards the end, and they were short in distance( thankfully )! Much enjoyed race and great weather for it. Over the moon, as I managed another PB of 1hr38mins......33secs quicker than Yeovil which was completely unexpected.
Well done to all the other Yeovil Town runners who were at Taunton today. Sorry, I'm useless with names but Rob Thompson was one of them. Managed to get a snapshot at the end

PUB RUN – BARRINGTON (5th April 2018)
Phil planned the route, and J.C. led. From the pub we ran west and took the first left. A steep climb up a narrow lane took us up to the Football Ground. I’d known for years that Lyme Regis played Barrington in the Perry Street League, but never knew where the football field was until tonight. I bet there have been many wind swept games of football played here over the years. We descended and followed a loop. At Stocklinch we passed an old red phone box packed full of books, and an old stone church with 3 exposed bells above the roof. Past Atherstone we climbed another significant hill. At Hurcott (I think it was), we passed a farm with two Giraffes peering over a stone wall. The Giraffes were actually wooden ones. We stopped for a photo shoot then continued down Hollow Road. At the bottom we met the other faster running group. We continued up Muckleditch lane, and Hurcott Lane. A right turn took us back past the football ground, and down the steep hill. I noticed tonight an abundance of public paths which could make some good summer running. We came back to the pub at 5.5 miles. Thanks Phil, J.C. and all.
