Honiton land Mixed Team triumph at Woodland Relay event

There was a huge turnout for Honiton Running Club’s Woodland Relay last Wednesday at Core Copse on a perfect evening for running, writes Judy Davey.

Honiton itself had about 60 adult members running and another 20 Honiton juniors taking part.

Honiton were joined by Axe Valley Runners, The Met Office, N1 Tri Club, Exmouth and Sidmouth Running Clubs.

The three adults in each team ran a leg each of just under two-and-a-half miles before tagging their next team mate. The first team back overall was Axe Valley Runners ‘Young Uns’ consisting of Chris Keefe, Matt Clist and Liam Roberts in a time of 42 minutes and seven seconds.

Honiton had the winning mixed team which was made up of Suzanne Spiller, Ben Stone and Ian Stewart. They finished in 46:32. Honiton also took the vets prize made up of Steve Davey, Rod Inglis and Richard Harris. They finished in 50:30 and AVR had another success with their ladies’ team which finished in 50:57 and was made up of Amy Greenhalgh, Robin Carter and Eleanor Wood.
