As the 2017 summer comes to an end, Sidmouth Running Club members have been posting the last few ‘Mighty Green At Large’ photos on the club’s website, writes Monica Read.

The competition has seen members wearing their SRC shirts, promoting the town and keeping their running going all over the globe.

Competing for the most breathless run have been Sarah Watkins at the top of Machu Picchu in Peru, Paul Wright at the Eggishorn in Switzerland, Naomi and Toby Garrick in the Pyrenees and Deb and Don on Mount Etna.

Lara Millmow set the challenge on watery locations at Lake Geneva, followed by Cath Miller in the Algarve, Antony Hall on the Cornish coast and Tim Clay getting showered at Niagara Falls. Polly Walton kept dry in the Dordogne

And with plenty of staycation runs in the UK Abbi Lee was furthest North when she ran up to Arthur’s seat (disappointed not to find something to sit on) and Chris Parker furthest South when he covered 20km of the coastal footpath at the Lizard Point.

Club members covered all the UK bases Danny Painter running up Glyder Fach, Snowdonia, with some more urban appearances from Theo Burgess competing in Richmond Park, and Janice Ranson training on the Isle of Dogs.

Locally, the summer training runs took place off road, enjoying plenty of local beach and countryside and the last few of these will take place in the coming weeks before reverting to town based runs as the dark evenings start to draw in.
