Women Can Marathon - update

Ashlynn, Gill and Diana took part in the Women Can Marathon which was held on 28th May 2017.

Ashlynn and Gill Nordic walked this Marathon and Diana ran.

The route was challenging beginning in Tipton St John, before heading out to Budleigh Salterton and then taking in the coast path back to Sidmouth. This was the half way point. We then ascended East hill and headed out beyond Ottery St Mary, before turning for 'home', our last leg back to Tipton St John.

Ashlynn and Gill set off at 08.00 hrs. We maintained a steady pace of about 4 miles an hour for the first half of the Marathon. Diana set off at 09.00 hrs and caught us up at the 11 mile mark, where she then walked with us for the remainder of the route. The second half of the marathon felt more challenging because in addition to the huge climb up East Hill we were tired from having walked for 5 hours already. We felt in good spirits throughout, despite all nursing minor injuries, and we completed in 9 hours, 9 minutes and 33 seconds (the time limit was 10 hours).

We would like to thank everyone who sponsored us and donated money to  Sidmouth Hospiscare Trust. To date we have raised in the region of £1000 an amount which far exceeded our hopes and expectations.

If you have not donated and would still like to, please see our Just giving page above or send donations to us at Keel House, 5 May Terrace, Sidmouth EX10 8 EN.

Many thanks for your support.
