Weekly Review – Week Ending 28th July

CONGRATULATIONS to our latest batch of beginners, who completed their graduation at Chippenham parkrun on Saturday. Between them and our regular members, we had 31 of us.

Many of us were sporting bright tutus as it was the annual Lucy Jillings run for Pancreatic Cancer and lots of money was raised for charity too.

The Mackies (and Willow), used the last day of their holiday to take on the Seaview 17. A 17 mile run from Lynmouth to Minehead. A great way to spend time on holiday and most importantly, a great food table at the end. Well done to all 3 of you.

Becky Townsend, Helen and John Ashworth, made the relatively short journey to Bath for the Bath Running Festival Long Half Marathon. Clocking in at just over 16 miles and with trails, hills and heat, it could be the toughest half marathon in the country. They look happy to have finished.

Doing an actual half marathon, Chris Hutton did the Afan Forest Half Marathon, finishing 12th overall.

Thursday saw another away run, as the club decamped to Marshfield. Again, the weather was beautiful (we have been lucky this summer) and the photos were fantastic.
