Mighty Green Jo Earlam completed her 80th marathon at the Plym Valley Trail event organised by First and Last Running.  
Jo ran with fellow MG Jane Hemsworth, who has completed 29 marathons, and completed the course in 5:36:00. The ladies were pleased with their time, as they had walked the last couple of miles to accompany a runner who had fallen; their club spirit shining through. 
Julia Haddrell was all smiles as she crossed the finish line at Seaton Park Run for the 100th time, despite the rain. Julia said she appreciated all the shouts of encouragement from the other SRC members taking part. We will have to wait and see if she buys the landmark t-shirt! 
The club’s organisers of JP’s Exe to Axe race also reached a landmark this week; the 200th entrant to ‘An adventure 22 miles in the making!’   
Paul Mitchell, David Lee and Rob Edwards have been hard at work planning the club’s biggest fundraiser which had to be cancelled last year. A couple of changes include using chip timing and having an open start time between 9am and 10.10am. Paul said: ”Entries have been received from the length and breadth of the country with the furthest entrant being in the Canary Islands!”
