Honiton’s Bidmead competes in gruelling Full Monty 10
Howard Bidmead took part in the Full Monty 10, writes Judy Davy.
This is one of the toughest 10-mile races in the area held at Ham Hill Country Park near Yeovil.
It is run totally off-road with ten hills to negotiate, each one numbered.
This year due to recent adverse weather the mud was exceptional which made for sticky going.
Fortunately Bidmead was able to maintain a constant steady pace and was able to finish well in a time of 1:40:11 which was eight seconds slower than last year, but with more mud than normal to negotiate, he was pleased with that time and he finished 82nd out of the 250 runners.
