Archant

Only six Honiton Running Club members took part in the Otterton Reindeer off road 10k run last Saturday which is hardly surprising as the Running Club’s Christmas party was the night before.

The race had to be re-routed from the usual course due to the floods of recent weeks. Steve Davey led Honiton home to come 24th in 49:30.

Suzanne Spiller was hot on his heels for most of the race and finished 31st in 50:16. Simon Spiller was next home, finishing 54th in 53:40.

Mark Andow had a good race, coming 66th in 55:26 and Judy Davey’s race suffered as she had a cold.

She was disappointed with her finish of 88th place in 57:31.

Kathy Layzell really entered into the festive spirit adorning herself with tinsel, a Rudolph nose and a Christmas stocking and she finished 154th in 1:08:58.

There is a prize for the fastest married couple and although neither Honiton couple won, the Spillers finished runners-up whilst the Davey’s were third!

There were 196 finishers and the race was won by Laurence Bolam in 39:33.

Runners enjoyed mulled wine and mince pies on their return.

Thanks are due to the organisers and Sidmouth Running Club.

All money raised went to Otterton Primary School.
