The Blackdown Beauty organised by Honiton Running Club fell in the middle of the recent heatwave, but this did not deter Mighty Green Mark Andow who was, as it turned out, the only SRC member to represent the club. 

Despite this, the self-navigating run was well supported - mad dogs and Devon folk in the midday sun sprung to Mark's mind! Mark thoroughly enjoyed the route aside from the stinging nettles and enjoyed a lovely cream tea at mile 13 before completing the 18-mile charity run in the top three.

Whilst many of the clubs' runners were cooling off in the sea last Monday evening a dedicated core of Mighty Greens ran with run leader Clive Gilbert. Taking advantage of the track on Tipton St John's playing fields they did some warm climate speed training!

Not only was Mighty Green Derek Blackburn celebrating his 25th volunteer credit as 30 minute pacer at Cranbrook parkrun this weekend, it was also his 50th parkrun. The race director said Derek has helped a lot of people achieve an awesome sub-30-minute 5km.
