David Wright represented the Mighty Greens on the final Thursday of 2018 when he took part in Taunton Running Club’s fun and friendly annual event, The Bridgewater to Taunton Canal Run, writes Hamish Spence.

He parked the car up at Taunton railway station to catch the 8.36am train to Bridgwater, from where he ran back along the canal path to Taunton.

This was a sociable event with around 80 other brightly coloured runners getting on the train at Taunton.

So, with high spirits on and off the train, David made the 14.5-mile run back, only stopping for the hot soup halfway back.
