Man Up & Down

Organised by Purple Gecko Events, and in support of Man Down Cornwall!

“Nice to get back to a coastal challenge. First one since May. Man up and down 20k from Portreath to Perranporth. Perfect weather and great views if I could take my eyes of the ground long enough! Prize was a pint at the watering hole to finish” (Race Report by Marty)

Torbay Half Marathon by Claire Barlow

Today I did the Torbay half marathon and I loved it. Did better than last week, learnt from what I did wrong, really pleased with my time although it’s not as fast as I used to be, hopefully I will get there again. Would definitely recommend this as a good road race for a good time.

Bude Pirate Run

Club results from the Bude Pirate Run: Jane Stedman: 1.31.26 (with a fabulous sprint finish), Julie Oxenham: 1.34.50 Ian Ringer: 1.38.28 John Tilley: 1.38.41 Nichola Sinclair: 1.51.00We can’t leave out Jo Temple, 1st female home, in 1.06.29. Well done Jo. In spite of a promise of rain, it was dry and warm for the run. It’s a great route with BIG climbs and beautiful coastal views. The Bude Surf club was very welcoming and the pasty delicious. Finally, a big thank you to Jane Stephens, who stepped in as race director, as Phil is isolating. The race would not have happened if Jane had not volunteered. Thanks Jane. (Race Report by Ian)
