Seaton on Grizfest Saturday featured an outstanding afternoon of running by the children and youth of Seaton, Devon and other corners of Britain setting the scene and challenge for their elders on Sunday, writes Dave Mutter.

At the starting line for the Fun Run were 314, mainly primary school children of all ages, with Seaton Primary School driving strong support for the event.

First home was AVRs Sam Eyre covering the 2k in a mere eight minutes!

Esme Huntley of Charmouth Primary crossed the line as first girl. The Fun Run goes from strength to strength from the 88 starters this year.

The Junior Grizzly, a 4k race, featured 47 runners and was won by last years champion Thomas Rehal of Blackwater Junior Tri Club.
