Women Can Marathon and Relay
Celebrating 50 Years in Women's Running
LED were proud sponsors of the Women Can marathon that took place in East Devon on the 28th May
There was awesome multi-terrian course set within the stunning East Devon Area of National Beauty, the scenic Sid and Otter Valleys and along a section of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast Path and those taking part could choose to either run or Nordic Walk this one off unique event!
Jo, Pauline and Peg all worked together to make sure this event was an amazing success and both Jo and Peg joined the other 400 womean taking part! Afterwards Jo said: “It was absolutely incredible. When I came up with the idea, somebody said we’d probably only get half a dozen entries! “So to have 400 women from across the country and around the world come and take part is beyond my wildest dreams. The amount of positive support has been totally overwhelming. And it’s just been a wonderful, wonderful day.”
Here at LED we wanted to suport this event wholeheartedly so we offered a YEARS LED Unlimited membership to the East Devon winner of the marathon! We're so exicted to say that Jessica Raynor, from Sidmouth, won the first East Devon runner home prize! She was second lady in an amazing 3hours 53 minutes!
So we've all been asking when the next event will be and Jo's reponse was: “Lots of people are asking us that and we’re definitely talking about it!”
