Nine members of the Honiton Running Club took part in the Dalwood Fayre 10k multi-terrain race, writes Judy Davey
There is not much that’s flat in this race with undulations throughout. Thankfully, it was a little cooler than it has been recently. The race was won by Axe Valley Runners’ Matt Clist in the fantastic time of 39:24. Honiton’s Kevin Hawker was second in 40:56 and Ian Stewart was not too far behind in fourth place in 43:09.
Ben Stone was next back, finishing fifth in 44:06. Rod Inglis had another great race coming 11th in 49:18 and he was followed by Steve Davey who found the race unusually hard to come 15th in 51:20.
Howard Bidmead was next back in 17th place in 52:09 and he was followed by Mark Dallyn who finished 19th in 53:42 having just overtaken a young lad on holiday in Dalwood running his first ever 10k.
Mark had been overtaken by Judy Davey during the race but paced himself well to overtake her and keep in front. Judy finished 21st in 54:19 being first lady back for Honiton and third lady overall winning a bottle of wine for her efforts.
Louise Crisp was the only other Honiton lady representative finishing 29th in 57:36. There were 49 runners altogether. Thanks to the Fayre Committee for great organisation and providing an abundance of cheery marshals.
