The Colyton Fiver and fun runs were once again a great success and through generous donations from the competitors as well as the cakes and refreshments £791.81 was raised for the BBC Children In Need appeal, writes Dave Mutter.

Matt Clist was the victor in the Fiver taking only 27:55 for the somewhat muddy multi-terrain route.

Second home was Simon Bayliss in 29:52 which pleased race organisers Phil and Vicky Bayliss no end!

Alex Todd was third in a time of 30:15 and a super run from Jon Day saw him finish fourth and also first makle over 40 in a spendid time of 31:29.

Amy Greenhalgh was the first lady home and ninth overall in 33:03 and Graham Newton’s fine run of form continued as he finished first over 60 and 11th overall in 34:26.
