13th July 2020 – 17 intrepid Bodmin Road Runners set off to run from Lands End to John O’Groats (LEJOG 3). Ian Ringer ran the Wales Coast Path (870 miles) and finished in 105th place.

The early mist cleared and as the sun began to break through somebody shouted go but the website crashed. And nobody knew where anybody was. Fran threw his toys out of the pram and got his knickers in such a twist as runners posted their progress on the map. The organisers asked for calm and time to mend their app as people kept on running, past Sennen and the first & last pub. Onto Penzance and past St Michael’s Mount running through the drive in because the restaurant at McDonalds is closed. Up the A30 and off to Camborne & Redruth mindful as not to stop in case someone nicked yer trainers. Some stopped over at Healey’s Cider Farm whilst others took photos of little red symbols on make believe maps, chuffed to find a speech bubble with their name, position, miles, and location. This virtual challenge pays no heed to the rain, the sun and the heat as we head towards John O Groats on two little feet.

Good luck everybody – Fran
