Several runners from the Honiton Running Club decided to run a bit further than a usual Saturday morning on April 6.

The Powderham Power Run is a 5 and 10-mile run around the gardens and fields close to the castle.

The strong winds from Storm Kathleen threatened to cancel the event but it went ahead.

The 5 Mile race was won by Henry Irvine of Dawlish Coaster in 30 minutes 47 seconds.

Mother and daughter, Donna and Jasmine Stone, ran together and finished in a time of 50:53, followed closely by Roger Saunders in 51:58 who struggled on the initial hill up to the Belvedere Tower.

Tina Duckitt ran the 10 mile race which was two loops of the five-mile route, which must have been a real challenge, and came in in a time of 2:11:07.

The winner for the 10 mile race was Ben Neal in a time of 1:02:10.
