Marker Family ‘Race To The Stones’ – We Did It!

Richard Marker and 3 of his daughters recently completed the Race to the Stones.  Richard said “We met the challenge and beat it.   We completed the 100k Race to the Stones on the weekend of 11th & 12th July.  For those of you that didn’t know and I apologise for this it was only Stephanie, Joanna, Angela and myself that did the walk, sadly Karissa couldn’t take part as she was almost 7 months pregnant and the doctor’s advice was not to participate.   We were all a little sore, but very proud of our achievement.   The girls all had some good blisters to show for their experience and I have shin splints.   I have been told by my daughters that I will not be able to talk them into participating in anything with me again unless it involves laying on a beach in the sun.   I am not sure I will be able to talk myself into something like this again.


A big thank you to everyone who has donated.   It is very much appreciated not only by us, but by Hospiscare Honiton as well.   I know there are a few of you that still have a guilty conscience because you had promised that you would donate, but haven’t yet.   Also there are the ones that know that they should, but haven’t yet done it.   Well there is still time to donate as the site is still open.
