Big shout out to
Wow what a day in London. The run was exhausting but no one warns you that slapping kids hands, clapping all the band’s and street acts and saying thank you everyone that shouts your name in encouragement is even more knackering.Really appreciated meeting up and tagging along with a lady from Hayle Runners. We ran the last 7 miles together and crossed the finish line with the St Piran’s Flag.
The most electric atmosphere running in London.. supporters through the whole 26.2 miles which kept us all going… would I do it again??… ye
What an amazing experience, loved all the support from the crowds, the bands, drums and djs all along the way and I crossed the line next to a man in a rhino suit (Claire)
For me Sunday was a fantastic day as I completed my first Marathon, running it Virtually on the Goss Moor!In some very testing conditions of heavy rain and strong headwinds, accompanied by Phil Dawber joining me for the last 8 miles.. I was also really happy to finish with the sub 4 time I’d aimed for of 3:48:12 (Dan)

Still nursing chafing and toe nails! Very pleased to limp to the end in testing conditions!
Great work everyone x

“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)

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.
