Honiton runners took part in Kilmington Primary School’s Kilmington Kanter seven-mile multi-terrain race on Good Friday with some tremendous results, writes Judy Davey.

There are two substantial climbs making this a fairly challenging route. Ben Stone was first back for Honiton, coming fourth in 46 minutes 38 seconds picking up a prize for his efforts.

Just back from holiday looking like he had been tangoed, Tim Legg also picked up an age category prize finishing 11th overall in 52:20.

Tom Bornet had a good run to finish 19th in 52:20 with Steve Davey hot on his heels just one place later and 22 seconds.

Richard Harris had a great race finishing 23rd in 53:18 and Mark Dallyn, still with London Marathon in his legs, did well to come 32nd in 55:23.

Judy Davey was the first Honiton lady home finishing 39th overall in 57:23 picking up a prize for third lady. Pippa Westall wasn’t far behind coming 43rd in 59:15. Tony Peek found he had set off too fast yet again and suffered with stitch as a result.

He sprinted to beat Louise Crisp to the finish line in 48th place in 1:01:28 with Louise crossing the line just four seconds later.

She struggled a bit, but was running with tired legs after a heavy training week. Howard Bidmead ran with his step daughter to complete the line-up coming 81st in 1:24:05.

Tom Merson won the race in 38:36 and there were 85 finishers. Upon their return, runners were treated to a welcome cup of tea and hot cross bun. Juniors Rowan Westall and Megan Burton took part in the Fun Run.

Louise Crisp and Tony Peek were out again last Sunday taking part in Plymouth’s Half Marathon.

This time it was Louise’s turn to beat Tony. She was delighted to achieve another personal best time finishing in 1:48 with Tony a minute behind having found the last half a mile really hard going mainly being it was up hill!

It was a good route, with varied scenery although there was a long slope of a hill at about 4 miles before a nice downhill stretch.

Then it was through the National Trust’s Saltram Park before going out along the Embankment and turning around heading back into the city via The Barbican. The weather was kind for most of the run with drizzle at about 11 miles, but even that soon cleared. A very well organised event.
