Following the highly successful Blackdown Beast social run organised by Honiton Running Club in January, a presentation took place in Cotleigh to Macmillan Cancer Relief.  

Over 200 runners from all over the country took part in the Beast. This year the base was on Dunkeswell Airfield and passed through Smeatharpe, Upottery, the Sidmouth Arms and back to Dunkeswell, taking in some of the best sights in East Devon. 

The magnificent sum of £3,311 was presented before club members took part in the monthly 5k timed handicap. This month’s winner was Helen Williams who has recently joined the club graduating from the beginners’ group. Helen improved her time by a massive 3 minutes 14 seconds.  

HRC are putting on their second event of the year on July 16, raising funds for the same charity. This social run is based from the Holman Clavel, Otterford, nr Taunton and entries will be open soon at www.honitonrc.com
