Hennessey leads Honiton runners home at Dalwood

PUBLISHED: 18:00 28 February 2018


Several Honiton Running Club members took the short journey to Dalwood to take part in the Dalwood Three Hills Challenge last Sunday, writes Judy Davey.

This event is a tough 10-mile multi-terrain race boasting four hills rather than the suggested three.

It was the start of the really cold spell and most runners donned another layer, respecting the conditions.

At least it was dry, but it was very hard underfoot with the ground being frozen.

Adam Hennessey was the first back for HRC coming 6th overall in a time of 1:13:21.

Nick Silkstone is used to it being cold as he only came back from four months in Antarctica last week.

He came 11th in 1:17:01. Alasdair Moffett followed to come 21st in 1:22:06 and hot on his heels was young Will Daly, who finished 48 seconds later.

Rod Inglis was next, coming 28th in 1:27:47. Steve Davey came 37th in 1:33:13 and his wife Judy was far too close behind for his liking!

She came in just one place and 14 seconds later, winning her age category prize. Mark Dallyn finished 45th in 1:37:01 and Tim Wigram came 55th in 1:41:33.

David Perkins managed to fall over before he began the race and came 60th in 1:43:00. Paula Ferris was the second lady back for HRC coming 67th in 1:47:34 followed by Linda Grady 74th in 1:50:46.

Joe Daly completed the line-up to come 93rd in 2:12:54. There were 98 finishers and the race was won by James Green in 1:05:41.

Oscar Devine took part in the fun run, coming 27th in 18:48. There were 30 finishers.

Thanks to Dalwood Run Committee, the landowners and marshals for another great Dalwood race.
