Several Honiton runners travelled to Dartmoor to take part in the six-mile Haytor Heller, writes Judy Davey.

This is a tough moorland event with a 1000 ft of Climb. Starting halfway up Haytor runners made their way to the top to be met with the most magnificent view. Ascents were steep and descents rocky.

After climbing to Hound Tor runners made their way back across the moor ascending the rear of Haytor before a final sprint down to the finish.

Mark Dallyn had a fine run and was first Honiton runner home finishing 69th in a time of 59 minutes 54 seconds.

Mark was followed by Howard Bidmead who is running well and finished 110th in 1.05.38. Olivia Higginson was first back for the Honiton ladies and was impressive finishing just behind Howard in 123rd place in a time of 1.06.52.

Claire Rouse was next back in 171st place in 1.16.16. Claire loved the event describing it as her best multiterrain race ever.

Jayne Bevan was next in 182nd position in 1.18.05 followed by Lorna Jarrald in 191st place in a time of 1.19.28. There were 229 finishers and the race was won by Ceri Rees in 41.07.
