There has been lately a tradition of turning up at the wrong locations for the Wednesday runs, writes Terry Bewes.

But the Ball family have taken this to a whole new level mistakenly heading for Crackington Haven.

By a strange coincidence they met their son there running the Crackington to Tintagel leg of the coast path as part of Bristol Southmead Care Unit coast path marathon.

So donning the Mighty Green, Jon joined his son Geoff to complete the 19k in just under three hours.

This was an excellent time given that there was over 3500feet of climb on this section.

The support team of wife Penny and daughter Caroline brought much needed liquid refreshment and food from Tintagel for lunch at Ladies Window.

It was a wonderful run at this time of the year with the spring flowers, butterflies and the oh so blue sea.
