Sharon is also well on her way to her 250th Marathon – which she hopes to achieve in December.</p> <p> </p> <p>Sharon took on and completed 4 off road races in 9 days.

The BIG Plog - Saturday 10th November 2018



<p>This is the BIG one - As far as I can see NO other club in the UK has held PLOG that covers a MARATHON route, as you will be aware the Cornish Marathon covers 26.2 miles, as we loop back on part of the course our PLOG will be about 18/20 miles. </p> <p>Before I set out all the arrangements I need to KNOW who is taking part, NO one person will be expected to run the total distance, the PLOG will be broken down in 4 groups each running approx 5 miles each. 5 miles of PLOG will take about 90 minutes. Start time is likely to be 8/9am TBC.</p> <p>The plan is afterwards to have breakfast / brunch at Inkies.</p> <p>So if you want to JOIN a ground breaking / record breaking / planet saving PLOG please email membershipech@gmail.com.</p> <p>All equipment will be provided, just turn up at meeting point TBC.</p> <p>Regards</p> <p>Craig </p>
