Sidmouth Running Club: Mighty Greens fly the flag home and away

By Guest

Sidmouth Running Club members Chris Heyworth and Amanda Darling sported their Mighty Green shirts in searing 30C heat to take part in The Hash on the beautiful island of Barbados. The Mighty Greens ran the five-mile route in 1:03:00.

Meanwhile MG Lynda Hawkins was taking part in Acea Run Rome The Marathon with her daughter Leah. Lynda enjoyed sharing Leah's first marathon experience through the scenic route and finished in 4:12:55.

Closer to home London Marathon club place holder, Mark Andow, continued his training by entering Running Events Devon Pasty and Pie Challenge. The challenge is to run as many 5.3k out and back laps along Exmouth's scenic old disused train line in the seven-hour cut-off. The Mighty Green set himself a goal of completing 8 laps for a Marathon distance and with the route good for pacing was delighted to get a big PB of 3:38:27 coming in 3rd of the marathoners (one person ran an ultra.) Mark said the weather was perfect, the event organisers were very friendly and the pasty went down a treat!

Several of SRC's men took part in the Hospiscare Mens Walk on Saturday swapping their Mighty Green shirts for purple ones. Despite being incognito, they recognised each other along the 9 mile route from The Pig, Gittisham to Sidmouth Rugby Club. They all enjoyed a well deserved pint and pasty at the end though perhaps not the England/Ireland rugby game as much!

Behind the scenes the Sidmouth Celebrates the SW Coast Path 50th Anniversary team are working hard as the date draws closer. For further details how to get involved with the junior fun run, adult climb and slide, Sidmouth Ring walk and the Coleridge Trail walk visit
