The London Marathon is very difficult to get in with 150,000 people trying to get one of about 15,000 ballot entries, that left many AVR’s free for the day so a minibus full of eager Axe Valley Runners headed north towards Chepstow / Tinterne Abbey for the 20k off road delight called the Offas Orror, writes Dave Mutter.
If you watched the London Marathon on Sunday, then in between arty shots of Big Ben you may have spotted one or two of the AVR gang that ran in the heat, writes Dave Mutter.
With the London marathon next weekend, what better than to beat all those home by running the flat Asics Greater Manchester Marathon that started and finished at the Theatre of Dreams (Manchester United FC), writes Dave Mutter.
Five AVR members made the short journey to Honiton to run a very boggy, muddy and foggy Honiton Hippo which as its name suggests is also a pretty wet affair climaxing in the runners having to cross through the River Otter, writes Dave Mutter.
The weather was perfect for last week’s Exe to Axe race, 21 miles from Exmouth to Seaton along the coast path, which made for a magnificent run, writes Gary Perratt.
