A group of Trotters travelled to Cornwall to take part in the Cornish Marathon, organised by East Cornwall Harriers. Luckily it wasn’t raining, although as there was bad weather the night before it was wet underfoot in places. The route is recognised as being a tough one – especially the climb between miles 24 and 25.
Trotter results are: Martin Randall (113, 3:49:30), Roger Hales (131, 3:54:14), Matthew Dunn (144, 3:57:18), Allen Taylor (145, 3:57:49), Lance Mason (145, 3:57:49), Paul Sharples (203, 4:13:46), David Dunn (209, 4:15:16), Neil Pallant (246, 4:25:19), Kevin Sampson (247, 4:25:19) and Dermot Smyth (275, 4:30:45). There were 403 runners.
On 6th November, Richard Keatley travelled up to Surrey and did the Thames Meander Marathon. The route goes on a 13 miles out-and-back course by Kingston-on-Thames and Richard had a thoroughly enjoyable run, although it was bid windy on occasion. Richard claimed his medal, which was of a MK1 Hurricane, and finished in a time of 4:24.
