Catch the Leprechaun 5km Saturday March 15, 2014

A small but enthusiastic group of runners took part in the third annual "Catch the Leprechaun 5km" hosted by TriStyle in Sudbury. A light snow during the night may have detered a few participants but for those who showed the temperature was a balmy -9 with light winds. The footing was slow but everyone made it through without incident.

The youngest runner was Reija, 6 months (in the buggy) and the oldest was probably Louis, 70. Congratulations to the winners Jenny-Lynn and Andre Fortin and thank you to all the volunteers and organizers.

Support Martin Parnell as he traverses the South West Coast Path of England, covering 630 miles in 25 days in support of Right To Play.

Martin began the Quest on Tuesday March 4th at 8:30am and will finish on Tuesday April 1st at 11:00am.
From Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset, the route passes through two World Heritage Sites, the Dorset and East Devon coast. The South West Coast Path (SWCP) is the longest and most popular of the UK’s 15 National Trails. Martin is taking on this challenge in order to raise £100,000 for Right To Play. Right To Play uses sport and play to educate and empower children and youth in some of the world’s most disadvantaged communities. By taking on this challenge, Martin and those who support him will enable Right To Play to reach a further 3,333 children as it costs Right To Play just £30 to put a child who is facing poverty, conflict and disease through one of our educational sport and play programmes for an entire year.

Start March 4 - Luis, a young supporter of Rotary Coastal Quest 630 at the start of the South West Coastal Path in Minehead, Somerset.

March 4 - Sure footed friend along the path heading into Lynmouth. Section 1 done and dusted.

March 4th 2014 - Day 1

At 6.00am the alarm went off and so the first day of Rotary Coastal Quest 630 began. Sue, Lyn, Cal and I headed down to breakfast. A bowl of granola, yogurt, banana and milk later it was time to pack the car. David came down and we loaded up the suitcase, backpack and “Goodlife” sports bag. He gave me a lift to the SWCP statue and already people were milling around the sea front. Marlene was there with her daughter Bev and Bev’s son Luis. The previous night Bev had presented me a cheque for £350, at the Rotary Club of Minehead and Quantocks, for Right To Play.

Sue, Lyn and Cal soon arrived as did a number of the Rotary Club members and Stephen and Carol Lay. As the clock moved to 8.30am I did a count down from 10 and blew the whistle. I was on my way. Stephen ran with me for 1 mile then I was on my own.

The route took me to Porlock Weir, 10 miles down the path. The heavy rains had socked the marches and it was slow going. A little further on the sea had thrown boulders on to the path causing a diversion along the beach. The second half of the route was up and down the cliffs mile after mile. A very enjoyable section was through the Culbone Wood. However I somehow ended up at the Foreland Point Lighthouse and had to ask the lighthouse man how to get back on the trail. I found the conditions very difficult and my pace dipped to 3 mile an hour.

I called Ro Day, the Rotarian who was looking after me tonight, told her that I was running one hour late and she said not to worry. After 21 miles of mud and marches I arrived at Lynmouth, time for a pasty. I went back to Ro and John’s farm house and rested up. Big day tomorrow....
