The annual Full Monty Cute 10.5-mile multi-terrain race was won by Philip Bridge of Wells City Harriers in1:07:10, writes Dave Mutter.

AVR Matt Clist, not feeling on top form, came ninth out of 255 runners in 1:17:34. Close on his heals was the ever improving Rob Collier 10th in 1:17:44, second MV40. Matt Hewer took an early fall which affected his running, but still came home 26th in 1:23:04.

Rupert Pady, on a streak of good form, was 44th in 1:28:33. Eleanor Wood won the first FV 55, finishing 74th in 1:33:55. Completing the AVR contingent was John Larcombe 190th in 2:01:07. Thank you, Crewkerne Running Club for another fabulous run.

Two AVR’s travelled to a soggy Otterton for the 16th annual Reindeer Run 10K.

This year, it had to be re-routed to avoid parts of the flooded Otter Valley. Fortunately, the rain eased off for the 10am mass start of over 300 runners. James Denne was the winner in 38:31, whilst the winner of the ladies’ race was Lizzie Dyson in 43:15.

Andrew Hartnell recorded a PB, 30th 53:27 whilst Alan Morbey was 44th 56:18 out of 182 finishers.

Many thanks to Otterton C of E PTFA for organising yet another fantastic reindeer run.

James Campbell of Purbeck Runners was the latest winner of the Seaton Parkrun in A time of 18:19 and Adam Hennessey of Honiton RC took third spot in a time of 18:38. AVR’s Sue Hayes was the first female, 16th overall in 22:11 with PET’s Joanna Hawkins, second female, 18th overall, 22:17 and Jennifer Marchant of Derwent Runners, third female, 22nd overall, 21:50.

Special mention to Sam Summers who completed her 50th Parkrun, finishing 126th in 36:22. Well done, Sam.
