Sunday was London Marathon day for two South Devon AC runners and everyone else spent the morning tracking them online! Anita Carpenter won the club place, really dedicated herself to training and finished in a fantastic 4:48:19. Colin Peters also ran and achieved a “Good for age” time with a superb 3:09:47.
Meanwhile other SDAC were running round in circles at the Cupcake Caper at Exeter which consisted of eight hours to complete as many loops as you could achieve. Some great distances for Steve Hookins, Marc Jones, Mark Stockman and Louise Lewry.
In the juniors Hannah Carr, Lauren Carr, Evie Rowe and Bess Hazell all competed in the Devon Open Series. They competed in individual events before all lining up for the 4x100m relay.
