Several Honiton Running Club runners took part in the Studland Stampede, a tough off-road running event that races over heathland and sandy beaches in the beautiful location of Studland Bay in Dorset. 

Runners of all abilities enjoy the race but it does require an amount of determination and grit to get through the final tough sandy miles.  

First back for HRC was Mark Newson, who came 35th in 59:04. Howard Bidmead had a great run and was delighted to finish under the hour coming 44th in 59:38. He was followed by Steve Davey who came 78th in 1:03:48.  

Richard and Pippa Harris haven’t raced for over two years and they finished one after each other, with Richard coming 114th in 1:08:47 and Pippa just 12 seconds later. Lyn Pike loves this race and finished 155th in 1:12:39. Clare Melbourne followed shortly after, 158th in 1:13:12 with Sue Jones finishing the HRC line-up to come 223rd in 1:19:46. There were 351 finishers.
