Three brave AVR souls made the short trip over to Escot for the first Extremely Jolly run sponsored by Red Rock Brewery, writes Dave Mutter.

There was mud a-plenty and two bridges to cross, two bridges to go under and no less than five river crossings!

It was a superbly organised 7.5 mile run with surprises along the way!

Carolyn Nation was the first of the AVR three home, finishing 200th in a time of 1:52:44. Next of the trio home was Denise Burges, finishing 201st in a time of 1:52:44 and Sam Summers came home 202nd in a time of 1:52:57.

There was a field of 247 runners for the event.

Due in part to the cracking weather, the pre-Christmas Seaton Parkrun attracted 229 runners, many creating new personal best times.

The winner was James Donald of Team Bath AC, with his time being 17:07.

Mark Spiller of Bishops Stortford RC took second spot in 17:54 and third was Huw Davies in a time of 18:08.

Becky Tovey of Romsey Road Runners was the first female home, with her time being 20:43. The second female was Ellen Keast, with her time being 21:11 and Jane Beech of the N1 Tri Club was the third female in a time of 21:19.
