Three AVR’s went to the notoriously fast and flat Martock 10k on Sunday, writes Dave Mutter.

The course certainly lived up to reputation as Terry Emmett and Matt Hewer continued their running improvement by both setting new Personal Best’s.

Terry finished second in a fantastic time of 35:46 and Matt finished 13th in 38:32. Robin Britton completed the course in 55:38, 169th person home, well inside his target time of an hour.

On Saturday, Patrick Devine-Wright took part in the Vegan Skyrace.

The route crosses fifteen 3,000ft summits in Snowdonia, North Wales, as well as the notorious Crib Goch ridge and covers a distance of 55km (33 miles), with about 4000m of vertical climb.
