Jurassic Mouth 2 Mouth Run – 7th September 2014
This was a charity mini run in aid of the RNLI from Weymouth to Exmouth organised by Jurassic Coast Mini Owners Club.
This was the first year I have attended this event, as a club we had planned to make a weekend of this and have an evening in Weymouth on the Saturday prior to the run on the Sunday however due to other commitments this was unfortunately not possible this year.
An early start Sunday morning leaving Royal Wootton Bassett at 6.15am to pick Dawn up on route. We arrived at the start point at Weymouth pavilion where we met up with Len. We signed on to the run and headed off for breakfast. On our return to the Pavilion getting on for 100 minis had assembled.
At 10am the run was waved off by the Mayor of Weymouth, we then headed out across Chesil to Portland Bill for a quick photo shot and then on along the Dorset coast to the mid run break at the Sidmouth Donkey sanctuary where the number of minis on the run appeared to have increased significantly.
After a short break (and very large ice creams) the run headed on to its final destination of Exmouth life boat station for a BBQ and charity raffle where I won a crate of beer (result!!)
This was an excellent, well organised run with a good mixture of twisting roads and easier sections so the minis didn’t become bunched up. Hopefully next year we will have more club members in attendance and make a weekend of it.
