It was AVRs that took first and second in the latest Seaton Parkrun, writes Dave Mutter.
Jake Smith, continuing on the comeback trail after injury, was first home in a time of 17:06 and Terry Emmett was second in 18:56.
Simon Durrant was third in 18:56. Another AVR, Flo Swann, was the first lady, finishing eighth overall out of the 154 entrants in 20:39. Well done, to one of the main organisers Lesley Adams who was able to run for the first time and finished first lady in her age group, 80th overall, in a time of 28:36.
Most of the AVR gang took part in an official Grizzly rehearsal run on Sunday, with different groups to suit each person’s ability. With only three weeks to go to the March 12, race date this was an important test of training; it was also an animal rescue mission as during the run a group managed to free a sheep that had been entangled in a mass of brambles.
