Congratulations to the Coasters who attended the Love Life Love Running weekend

A full report will follow with pictures but just a quick congratluations to all those who took part in the various races.

We had 36 Coasters take part in the Charity mile - well done to all the kids who ran/walked it.

In the 10k on the  Saturday we had some great times on a very tough course with Carol Yarrow winning first female home and 13th overall.


On the Sunday 6 hour relay we entered several teams. Andy Surplice put in an amazing effort to take on the full 6 hours solo, completing 8 7km laps. This is a hilly course and the heat of the day didn't help so this was an amazing achievement.

Our team of 2 Paul and Sarah Evans came second in the mixed category completing 5 laps each.

OUr team of 4: Carol Yarrow, Becky Wood, Andy Elliott and Chirs Aitkin won the mixed 4s category compeltign 3 laps each.

We then had two teams of 6 who battled it out throughout the 6 hours for the top prize. It all came down to the last runners with only 2 minutes between the two teams at the end - a spectacluar effort, particularly as the teams were only 1 second apart at half-way. The winning team was Lousie Mander, Rachel and Rodger Duckworth, Simon Crute, Paul Jenkins and Claire Elliott. The second placed team were Andy Yarrow, Phil Surplice, Josh Suplice, Nathy Feely, Claire Foster and Steve Wood.

The weekend isn't jsut about the races as its very family oriented with lots for the kids to do. The kids also seemed to get on well with one another which was very helpful! There was plenty of beer and wine floating around and a large event shelter for us to congregate in to aovid the rain on the Friday evening.
