On what was a blisteringly hot day last Sunday, several Honiton Running Club members took the short trip to Farway to take part in Farway Primary School’s, Over the Hill and Farway 10k race, writes Judy Davey.

This is a predominately road run incorporating a short track before the monumental climb of Warren Hill featuring over 400 ft of climb.

There is an award for the first King and Queen to the top of the Hill and the king prize this year went to Tim Lenton of Axe Valley Runners.

Eleanor Wood also of AVR was the first queen to the top. The race was won by another AVR runner in the form of Matt Clist who finished with a new course record of 37 minutes 10 seconds. Graham Reeves was first back for Honiton followed quickly by Ben Stone who came sixth in 42:01 after suffering with a cold all week.

Ross Penwill continued his amazing form to come 14th in 46:42 and was followed by Steve Davey who finished a minute later. Vernon Gillard is back on form and had a great run to come 16th in 48:08. Ceri Oak was the first Honiton lady to finish doing well to come second lady overall in 17th place in 48:22. Richard Harris was next back finishing 20th in 49:05. He was followed by Alasdair Moffett who enjoyed the run but struggled. He came 22nd in 49:30. Mark Dallyn found it hard, but ran consistently to come 24th in 50:28. He was followed by Judy Davey just one place and one minute later. Tim Wigram completed an ultra marathon just two weeks ago so with tired legs he did well to come 29th in 52:52. Pippa Westall had a good run and was justly awarded with first local lady runner. She was 33rd in 54:21. Greg Axsel didn’t enjoy it too much but came 36th in 55:53 completing the Honiton line-up for the main race.
