Roadrunners Help Barry Round the Coast

The club has been involved in a little piece of history, helping to complete a coastal relay around England, Wales and Scotland, inspired by Eddie Izzard’s feat of running 43 marathons in 52 days.

The relay started from Blackpool in May, heading up around the Scottish coast, and back down the east coast of England. A number of Thanet Roadrunners then continued the relay around much of the coast of Kent, helping the baton from Rochester to Dover in August. Barry the Baton finished his journey of almost 4,500 miles on 23rd October.

For further details, see the Coasters GB website, read the editorial on Runners World, and the club event page.
