Geoff Dillon completed the Coastal Marathon on 24 February, in Beesands, South Devon. This was Geoff's first marathon. He won a free entry in another race. It was an exceptionally tough course: either very hilly, very sludgy and waterlogged or both. Amazingly, he didn't have a single blister! The scenery, especially the first 10 miles along the spectacular South West Coastal Path, was a great distraction. The organisers have promised to have water at the finish next year, which they didn't have this time round!
Dave Crockwell got a PB at the Hastings Half Marathon, breaking 1:50 for the first time.
Carl Ferri wasn't running at his best for the Serpentine 5k and hobbled round with a calf strain.

This Thursday, 5 April, will be curry night straight after the swim at The Bridge. You can buy a curry and a drink for £5.
The new quarter starts on Thursday for those who want to pay up front for their swims at The Bridge. The cost is £35 to cover all Thursday night swims during April, May and June.
