Mighty Greens conquer the Plym Trail Marathon

 Mighty Greens conquer the Plym Trail Marathon

Sidmouth Running Club members Jane Hemsworth and Jo Earlam thoroughly enjoyed participating in their first marathon event in 15 months, writes Alexa Baker.

This was Jo’s 77th marathon and she said how great it was to run a proper marathon again.  Jane described the event as very relaxed and low key with a maximum of 30 entrants.  

The ‘out and back twice’ route took the MG’s along the Plym Trail between Cledbrook and Coypool and whilst they felt the early morning chill (just one degree) at the start line, the sudden rise in temperature took them by surprise and as they crossed the finish line it was a balmy 15 degrees!

Despite this they completed the 26.1 mile route in a time of 5:06 hours and were rewarded with a very nice well deserved medal.
