Stone leads Honiton runners home in Mrs E’s Big Wheeze race at Uplyme

22:43 30 July 2014

Several members of Honiton Running Club took part in Mrs E’s Big Wheeze based at Mrs Ethleston’s Primary School, Uplyme, writes Judy Davey.

There are 10k and 5k multi-terrain races as well as a Small Wheeze Fun Run of approximately 2km.

The 10k route is exhilarating following river banks, going through beautiful woods and climbing hills giving glimpses of the sea. Ben Stone was first back for Honiton in the 10k coming sixth in 41:50 and hot on his heels was Chris Entwistle who finished in 42:07.

Hadleigh Davies had a great race finishing 12th in 43:57 and Ross Penwill continues his great form to come 19th in 45:23. Suzanne Spiller knocked a minute of last year’s time despite the heat and finished second lady, 21st overall in 46:19. Rod Inglis flew around the course once again to finish 24th in 46:37 with young Findlay Fuller chasing him down to finish 17 seconds later. Richard Harvey was happy with his race finishing 27th in 47:46 and Steve Davey found the race quite tough but finished well to come 29th in 48:07.

Steve Selley enjoyed the race coming 33rd in 50:20 closely followed by Mark Dallyn who ran well to finish in 51:08. Judy Davey could see him for most of the race but he must have got away a bit towards the end as she finished 40th in 52:16. Bruce Strawbridge has been dogged by injury recently and hasn’t raced much this year.

He battled the race demons to come 53rd in 56:21 with Kathy Layzell completing the line-up to come 73rd in 1:04:15. There were 87 finishers. The 5k was won by Honiton’s very own Iain Ross who finished in 21:59 and the first girl was Flo Swan, also from Honiton.

She finished in 25:13. Sharon Wells also decided on the 5k option finishing 16th in 29:46. There were 23 finishers. Honiton’s girls did very well in the Small Wheeze with Katelyn Wells, Jasmine Stone and Ashley Ford-Cosens coming second, third and fourth placed girls respectively. There were 63 runners altogether.
