Race The Tide - 27th May 2017
On Saturday May 27th, Heather Maddock, Bridget Williams, Anita Carpenter, Chris Reece and Dave Cubberley took on the 'Race the Tide'. It was organised by Puretrail trail running events and was billed as a long half marathon - 16 miles through woods and bogs and down and across the Erme Estuary and then along the coast path before turning inland and back through the woods to the finish. The estuary had to be reached before the cut off time in order to be able to get across and continue. The group chose to run and finish together and did so in 4hrs 3 mins managing to keep their feet dry but not without becoming mud spattered.
