Guernsey endurance running’s greatest day?

Mud

60 of GIAAC’s endurance athletes from ages 10+ headed off to the Hampshire Cross Country Championships held near Botley at the weekend. They emerged from the championships very muddy and celebrating what might have been the best day in Guernsey distance running’s history.

The power of the pen

Who would have thought that a letter to the Guernsey Press by a slightly irate resident of the King’s Mills area of Castel, Guernsey would lead to a community movement that raised thousand of pounds for two local charitable causes.  Well that’s just what happened.

After a letter appeared in the Guernsey Press runners started frequenting the lanes of this corner of the Castel parish, taking cheeky selfies and before long a Facebook page emerged and gained hundreds of members.  Epic Challenges saw the opportunity to harness the community spirit for a charitable cause and on foul Sunday morning at the beginning of January hundreds of runners turned up and raised £4,657.15 for two young Guernsey people – Anthony McMahon and Jonah Gillingham who have serious medical conditions.
