The Roxy #RUNSUPYOGA started at 10am with 140 women taking part in a beach yoga session taught by Roxy ambassador and surf yoga instructor, Lucy Foster-Perkins. This was followed by competitors taking part in a 1.5km SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) race, led by Roxy’s Natalie Fox and held in timed heats of 10 per a group. Girls had to battle the strong current and waves to reach the Roxy buoy. Finally the 3km beach run at 4pm saw 80 girls united in a fast run across the sandy route whilst Fistral beach’s spectators cheered on.

The day was rounded off with a prize giving for the winner of the SUP race, who was Lena Hannan, aged 28, from Cornwall – she  won a Roxy SUP board from Ann’s Cottage before Roxy ambassadors, competitors and spectators headed to the Fistral Beach Bar to continue 25th Anniversary celebrations with live music.
