Weekly Round Up 10th April 2018

What a busy weekend it has been for the runners of Running Forever. Starting on Saturday morning with some people getting up bright and early to do parkrun.

Tourists included Ed Loat at Minehead parkrun, Linda Forsyth went up north to Sheffield to do the Concord parkrun and Hannah Taunton, Gill Taunton and Helen Phillips went to Burnham parkrun. Meanwhile 10 members stayed at home to run at Longrun. 

Jo Carritt was first lady at the Exmoor Endurance Life coastal trail half marathon in 2h 7m while Dave Marshall completed the marathon in 6h 39m. Both endured muddy, foggy and hilly conditions

Lara Bolduc travelled as far west as you can get to take part in the Cousin Jack Classic which entailed running 28km along the coast path from Cape Cornwall to St. Ives. She finished in 6h 14m and thoroughly deserved her Cornish pasty at the finish.

Meanwhile Claire Allison did the Avon Valley 6k on Saturday. That wasn’t enough for her so on Sunday she completed her 20th marathon, the Groovy Baby in Berkhamsted. Well done to her!

Even further away Hilary White ran the Paris Marathon in 4h 16 and Trevor Stow finished the Rome marathon in 4h 8m. Well done to both for excellent times in warm conditions.

It wasn’t quite so warm in Taunton where five members completed the full marathon – James Beach (3:19), Heather Pearce (3:38), Richard Staunton (4:21), Chris Gunn (4:22) and Chris Buckman (4:56).
