Shelley and Evelina are reaching peak fitness in time for the Bournemouth Marathon on 6 October. The Dunstable Downs event had distances of half marathon, 20 miles and marathon, all starting at the same time near the top of the downs. The route was self navigation with route instructions that did not prove to be a problem for Shelley and Evelina who ran together and finished in 3.37.29 for positions 50th / 51st. The finish was probably the lowest point on the course, a long way from the top so quiet an easy end to the event.
