The last weekend in January saw Emma Langstaff and Clive Finnimore take part in the gruelling Arc of Attrition. This winter coastal path run starts at 12 noon on the Friday, athletes then run 100 miles along the coastal path from Coverack to Porthtowan. Athletes are given a strict 36 hours cut off time to complete this super human challenge. With runners needing to run through the night to complete the challenge. Each 20 miles the athletes are given checkpoints starting at Carrick moving along the coast to Mullion, then on to Praa Sands and Marazion. Athletes carry on the coastal path, enjoying the breathtaking winter view on the Lands End, Sennen and Cape corn, before heading towards St Ives and Portreath. Emma Langstaff finished the 100 mile challenge in 28 hours and 45 minutes with Clive Finnimore completing the route in 29 hours and 9 minutes. Both are incredible times, for such a distance, voer such complicated terrain and time of year, with limited daylight to support the runners and having no escape from the elements being on the coastal path.
Donna Gundry took part in a three month challenge for Running Down Dementia, part of Alzheimer's Research UK. The challenge, which started in November 2021 and finished January 2022 was to run 300km (186 miles). During this time Donna raised £125 for Alzheimer's Research, however wanting to challenge herself, she decided from the outset she would double the distance. In total she ran 741km (460 miles), needing to run in cold mornings, dark nights and rainy days.
