Howard Bidmead travelled up to Arlington Court in North Devon for a race advertised as one of Devon’s most beautiful and tough off road 10k’s, writes Judy Davey.

Runners were not disappointed with fabulous views and serious climbs, but with the sun shining it was perfect running conditions.

Bidmead ran well for the first part of the race but suffered when an injury sustained on the Grizzly forced him to slow down considerably for the last 5k.

Despite this he still finished in 49mins and took the award for the first male vet O55.
