Honiton Calf won by Bobby Simpson

17:14 09 April 2014

The Calf is open to youngsters of nine years and over and is approximately one-and-three-quarter miles in length, writes Judy Davey.

It follows the same route as the Hippo until coming out of Combe Woods when the Calf runners are sent back to base on the road. Unfortunately, much to the disappointment of most of the youngsters but to the relief of others, this year it was decided that the river was a little deep and potentially dangerous for the youngsters to cross.

The race was won by Bobby Simpson in 12 minutes even if he did take an interesting path back through the school! Honiton’s Jack Elsom was given second place although he actually crossed the finish line first! Sam Dowson won U13B coming fourth in 12.56 followed by Florence Swan one place later who was first female.

Thomas Lilley came 10th in 14:14 followed by Jamie Porter who came 19th in 15:24. Max Salter was next back for Honiton RC in 21st place in 15:41. Hannah Land was next back coming 26th in 16:17 followed by James Oak 30th in 17 mins. Megan Burton came 35th in 18:40 with Zayna Small following two places later in 21:02. There were 38 finishers.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the run and those who helped including marshals and cake makers and especially the land owners for allowing 500 feet to trample their ground. Honiton’s next event is the Blackdown Beauty in July with places going quickly. Visit www.honitonrc.com for more information.
