Four Mighty Greens took part in the Battle of Woodbury Common and Rachel Barnard ran the 10K course in 1:11:57, while Mark Andow, Charlotte Forrer and Mark Norton ran the half marathon.
Mark A finished in 14th place in 1:59:20, Charlotte was 4th lady back and first in her age category in 2:09:46 and Mark N finished in 2:12:59.
The last of the Four Trigs training sessions started in sunny Sidford but, as Weston Trig came into view, so did the rain, which made the homeward section very slippery indeed. Luckily those that fell did so gracefully and it all added to the training for the Blackdown Beast in a couple of weeks.
Karen and Christine Farnham missed this session to run in Oh My Obelisk organised by the Dawlish Coasters along. The twins ran the nine-mile course in 1:36:33, while fellow Mighty Greens Antony Hall, Catherine Hilton, Derek Blackburn and Clive Gilbert ran the half. Antony took a fall halfway through but bounced back and finished in 27th place out of a field of 184 in 1:43:14. Results: Catherine 2:13:18, Clive 2:20:13, Derek 2:34:31.
In Budleigh Salterton, four Mighty Greens took part in The Walter Raleigh Round organised by Climb South West. The new half marathon race visits the birthplace of Sir Walter, plus High Peak and the Jurassic coast. Ollie Goodchild-Horne finished in 16th place out of a field of 140 in 2:02:51, Martin Truman in 2:07:12, Jamie Locke, running with his brother Tom, finished in 2:14:33 and new club member Becky Proctor finished in 2:47:48.
The ‘Back To Running’ group enjoyed interval training on Wednesday with head coach Kyle Baker. The group have bonded well and are very encouraging of each other. It was great to see members from the beginners and back to running groups join in the Monday night club.
The Juniors are back with the 8+ in the sports hall and the 11+ taking to the streets with hi-vis, torches and at least 2twoleaders. The 11+ group also meet on Sunday mornings for daylight off-road runs.
