Steve Davey, Bruce Strawbridge and Mark Dallyn took part in AVR’s Night Runner event last Saturday evening, writes Judy Davey.

Runners are guided on the course of this six-and-a-half-mile off-road race by lights placed at strategic points.

It is a tough event, made all the more challenging by the darkness with runners taken along Branscombe Beach before climbing the infamous Stairway to Heaven.

Davey was first back for Honiton coming 21st in about 57 minutes.

Strawbridge followed just a few seconds and two places later whilst Dallyn finished a very respectable 41st.

There were 80 runners and the winner was Michael Robinson on Tamar Trotters.
