RUN FROM GOLDENSTONES
7 of us were up for the 10 miler this morning. We started by running streets and paths through Yeovil to the top of the A37, then descended to the bus shelter where we took the path to Yeovil Marsh. We continued along country lanes almost to Ashington where we turned right and went to Mudford. The climb up Primrose lane is always a hill trial where you can get a good sweat on. We then slogged to the top of Mudford Road and rolled down past the hospital and along Princes street.

There were some ripe blackberries along the way, much better than I-phones.

Richmond Marathon

From Pete
Arrived London early afternoon on Saturday and dropped our bags off at the Victory Services Club.  Then off out for a bite to eat, once fed and watered we retired to our rooms for a rest before the inevitable ping on the IPhone to say "in the bar".  It seems there was a Army Air Corp - Aircrew reunion taking place, very smart they looked with all their medals.
We retired to the restaurant and had a very pleasant meal washed down with a bottle of red.  We looked at ways to get to the start at Kew Gardens:  walk/bus/walk/bus/walk or taxi at £30.00, neither very appealing.  So we looked at mini cabs, that was only £21.00 but if we downloaded their app we could use a promo code which took £10.00 off the cost.
Then off for an early ish! night as it was an 0800 start in the morning.
Right on time the mini cab turned up, driven by Mo's cousin?  If he ran as fast as he talked I would believe him.  We got there on time without any hold ups.
A quiet amble around the park to the start, customary nervous last pee and we were off, mainly towpath, track and pavement with a number of pointless loops thrown in for good measure.
We did pick up one stray who tagged along with us (he liked our pacing)?
Managed to get him in for a PB.  Pacing was fine until the half marathon and 10km runners joined the course which then mean't a lot of weaving around the walkers and slower runners.  We did at one point pass a firing range, I did remind the walkers of the fate that awaited them if they didn't get their backsides in gear (done in a fun way, it drew a laugh).
At the finish we managed to retrieve our bags and I relaxed with a can of London Pride.
Then quickly back to the VSC for a shower and change before heading to Waterloo for a tea and light snack to sustain us until we got back to Yeovil.
No goody bag on this one but we did receive a technical t shirt and a medal.
It's a flat course and the weather was perfect so would be suitable for club members wanting a low key marathon in London especially if you like the river Thames. 

Luke managed a PB and Catherine did well as well, both happy with there results.

Hangers Hero's Marathon

Saturday saw the Hangers Hero's Half and Marathon at Bagwell Caravan Park, the route is a big loop from Chickerell to Abbotsbury to Hardy's Monument to Upwey and home. The Club had a few runners taking part in the marathon, sadly the Sun was not going to come out and the rain came down with the fog. On the high ground the viz was down to about 50 meters and this spolt the lovely views. 





The results were Paul Allen and I joint first for the Club and Lynne was our first lady. This is a great local event, great value, good course and 95% of the money goes to local charities. WIth a half option as well more of the Club need to give this a go next year, you will love it.

Black Hugin 

Paul Allen and I went down to Kent on Saturday fr the Black Hugin Marathon, it was 8 laps around Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve passing a Viking Ship.


It did not start till 5 pm and with rain forecast for about 8 the faster the better, it also got dark around 7:45 so you needed a head torch as well. The rain held off with just the odd shower and we manged to finish our 8 laps and get back to the Prem Inn for a meal, Stellar and Red. As with all SVN event a nice medal and goodie bag.



Ring o Fire

Well done to Dave Tilsley and John Hayden of running the Ring o Fire this weekend.  Ring O’ Fire is an annual 135 mile coastal ultra marathon circumnavigating the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales over 3 days.
