Womens Running Series Exeter 5k, Boconnoc 5mile and more

On 18th June an ORC member got to stand on the podium to receive her 3rd place medal. Monika Richards ran in the Womens Running Series 5K which took place along the river in Exeter. Despite the soaring heat she had a good run and proved she is getting back on form after a break from the running scene.

This weekend saw our marathon man Roger Voaden run his 63rd marathon at Littledown near Bournemouth. His time of 3 hrs 27 minutes was not his best but it does put him one step closer to his 100 marathon goal.

Kerry Morashti ran a 5 mile multi terrain race at Boconnoc Estate in Lostwithiel in a time of 59.50 to support fund raising for St Johns Ambulance, a charity who are often at hand to provide much needed assistance at running events.

The benefits of cross training are recognised by most runners so inclusion of other activities are very much encouraged and included as part of the ORC training schedule. With this in mind six of our members mounted their bike to do the Dartmoor Classic bike ride choosing either Medio route (67 miles) or Grande route (109 miles). These riders were J.P Quertier, Rob Hicks, Molly and Sarah Marvin, David Mugliston and Tim Watson. Everyone complete their chosen distance.

Many thanks to Anne for the run report
