The weather was reasonably warm and dry for Axe Valley Runner’s Colyton Fiver multi-terrain race last Sunday, writes Judy Davey.

This is the first time this flat two lap race has been partly off-road and several Honiton Running Club members gave it a try.

Steve Davey was first back for Honiton in ninth place in 32 minutes 39 seconds with Suzanne Spiller next in 15th place in 34:15. She was first lady, winning a Pudsey Bear. Howard Bidmead followed one place and 12 seconds later with Spiller’s husband, Simon, coming 22nd in 36:14. New member Mark Dallyn did well in his first race for the club coming 23rd in 36:40 having overtaken John Burgess on the second lap. Burgess was next back in 26th place in 37:16. This was Steve Briggs’ first race back after injury so he was pleased to finish 42nd in 40:31. Clare Melbourne had a good run coming 57th in 44:44 and Val Hales had her usual consistent run finishing in 76th in 52:48. Wendy Williams didn’t have such a great run coming 77th in 54:08. The winner was Tim Lenton in 28:09 and there were 77 finishers.

There was also a fun run and three Honiton juniors took part. Iain Ross was second overall finishing in 16:27 having been overtaken just as he came in the gate for the finish.

Harry Whiteley was fifth in 17:41 and Florence Swan was first female back in 7th place overall in 18:20. There were 29 runners and Jacob Clode won the race in 16:16.

Thanks to AVR for organising another great race.
