The 10-mile Full Monty race from Ham Hill Country Park boasts eight proper hills, the first of which has a rope to help runners up, generous amounts of mud and great views, writes Dave Mutter.

AVR’s turned in some fine performances, not least of which was Matt Clist’s ding-dong battle with another couple of runners, including a three-time past winner. He did what he needed to do and won in 1:12:01, the fastest time in recent years, and just five seconds ahead of second place. Amy Greenhalgh was next AVR with another gutsy performance to break away from another lady to finish 15th and second lady in 1:24:50, then Eleanor Wood 65th and first vet 55 in 1:38:32. Robin Britton was 86th in 1:43:52, Roger Bramley 108th, 1:48:37 and John Larcombe 166th, 2:00:28. Of the second-claim members running, Richard Dodge was 99th, 1:46:53 and Andy Goodman 199th, 2:09:38. Matt, Amy, Eleanor and Robin were also the first team by just one place so well done all round.
