Starting at 9pm in Weymouth on the Saturday, Sarah ran through the night and finished 15 hours 19 minutes later on Exmouth seafront.

This hilly route which was a distance of 100k, took runners along the coast path, taking in 6,000 feet of elevation along the way.

Sarah triumphed at the event and was the first lady finisher for the 100k distance and beat the course record.

Another ECRC - Cranbrook member, Rachel Chamberlain, took part with daughter Robyn, in the Rainbow Run at Westpoint arena. This was Robyns first 5k run. Other members of the club took part as 'paint throwers' at this popular event.

This event took in four miles of hills combined with 20 obstacles, including hurdles and monkey bars, with penalties for any missed or failed obstacles, a rope climb and finally a leap over a fire to finish.
