Honiton Running Club members didn’t have to travel too far for last Sunday’s race, writes Judy Davey.
It was the Dalwood Fayre 10k multi-terrain. The weather started off a little muggy, but about halfway around the course it began to rain lightly before the heavens opened and heavy rain ensued.
This wasn’t too unpleasant for runners as they had all warmed up and the cooling rain was a relief.
However, it did mean that the runners had to take a bit more care over some of the potentially slippery areas.
Axe Valley Runners took the first 3 places led home by Jake Smith who won in 37 minutes 11 seconds creating a new course record.
