Jinxy Jenkins was spotted in Seaton on Saturday and Jonathan Day talked him into running Sunday's Four Trigs along with Big Si. The Four Trigs is a nominal 18 mile multi-terrain event where you ramble around the countryside near Sidmouth finding the quickest route between four map trig points. Unfortunately for Jinxy he was left on the first hill by his running compatriots. Apparently Gary Perratt talked Jamie Lambert into running not with John Day, but with his elite gang comprising Gary, Evergreen Bayliss and son Simon plus Luke Reed. Gary and Luke were the first AVRs home, equal 10th in 2:49:24, followed by Jonathan Day, 15th in 2:51:09. Evergreen and Simon Bayliss finished joint 17th in 2:55:02, followed by Jamie Lambert 21st, 2:55:47. Geoff (I fancy another break) Woodward was 27th, 3:00:34, Ian Walker 32nd, 3:07:20 and expectant dad Ian Apps 37th, 3:11:15. Richard Hale and Eleanor Wood finished joint 38th, 3:11:42. Sue Tubbs had a good run, helping around Carol Goddard to finish joint 82nd in 4:12:15. Chris Irving outsprinted Big Si (Simon Davey) to come 86th, 4:13:45, with Big Si five seconds adrift. Retro Reynolds was 89th, 4:14:14. This last threesome would have been earlier but Chris was not the best of navigators and got them lost!! Eventually Jinxy finished with two hashers at the end in 5:35:45, which relieved Big Si as he was feeling a tad guilty for leaving him behind, and Jon felt even more guilty for telling him it was only a 10k!l Harry Moore ran the very muddy three mile Inca Trail event at Ilchester, finishing in 45 mins. His granddaughter Tiffany ran very well to finish in 32 min.l The Dalwood Three Hills challenge, a fantastic local event, will take place next Sunday at 11am, starting near the Tuckers Arms. As you may have guessed there are three hills on this country run, but for an easier time there is a fun run of about 1.5 miles starting after the main run has departed. Entry on the day is £10 for affiliated club runners, £2 extra for insurance if you are not a running club member. The fun run is £3.
