Two Honiton runners travelled to the Forest of Dean for a 10k as part of the Trailblazer series, writes Judy Davey.

The weather was sunny, but still cool enough to make the forest trail enjoyable and runners were set off in waves according to their predicted finish times.

The course was run entirely on the forest trails and the gradual incline from kilometers three to six, added to the challenge.

Clare Melbourne went off too fast, wrongly anticipating a flat course, and paid for it in the second half finishing in 56.24, while Juliet Hall ran a great post-marathon race finishing in 59.23.

Runners were rewarded with medals, t-shirt and a goody bag making for a very enjoyable event!
