It was a blustery run at the Over the Hill and Farway 10k on Sunday, writes Dave Mutter.

However, depsite the conditions AVR claimed a hat-trick!

Tim Lenton was first male runner, Amy Greenhalgh first female and Mia Bartlett first in the junior intermediate race.

Lenton led from the start and stayed there through to the tape with a way kindly cleared for him by a marshal on a quad bike!

With the first big climb up Warren Hill in the bag, he was surprised to find the smaller climb at 6k a challenge!

That said, he still romped home in an impressive 38:57, a superb performance.

Other AVR times were: Martin Croad 46:14, Eleanor Wood 47:47 and 3rd lady, Geoff Woodward 50:36, Becky Platt 52:04, Steve Reynolds 53:32 and Margaret Pearce 55:13.
