Three AVR’s travelled to Buckland St Mary in Somerset for the inaugural Buckland Bolt, a multi-terrain 10k race across predominately private land in the beautiful Blackdown Hills, writes Dave Mutter.

A fast start taking in a circuit of the local cricket ground soon settled down to a more sensible pace.

The race was won by Dan Cahill of Minster Miles in 39:12. The first AVR back was Emma Parris 15th overall, fourth lady 56:27, closely followed Alan Morbey, 16th, 57:37, first MV 60, with Stephen Morbey, 31st, 1:12:01.

Many thanks to Chris Wadey and all at Buckland St Mary C of E Primary School PTFA for organising such a well marshalled event and we look forward to returning in 2019.

Chet Gillespie won the latest Seaton Parkrun in a time of 17:58 with Niall Thorne of Avon Valley Runners finishing second in 18:49 and Sean Edwards from Bournemouth AC, took third in 18:53. The first lady home was Serena O’Connor of Poole Runners, 10th overall in 20:04.
