Honiton Running Club was well represented at the Dalwood Fayre 10k multi-terrain race, writes Judy Davey.

Weather conditions were near perfect and there wasn’t too much mud to be found. The race was won by Tim Lenton of local Axe Valley Runners in 40 minutes and one second.

First in for Honiton was Chris Entwistle who came fourth overall in 43:55. This was his first time running the race and also running for the first time was Honiton’s next finisher, Alisdair Moffett in fifth place in 45:07. Steve Davey followed in eighth place in 47:48 and Tom Bornet is running very well to finish just after in 48:20 and one place later saw Richard Harvey in 50:24.

Suzanne Spiller finished just seconds later as first lady winning a bottle of wine. Howard Bidmead had a great run to finish 14th in 51:34.

Judy Davey and Mark Andow ran pretty much the whole race within metres of each other and there was a great battle for the finish line.

Time keepers couldn’t separate the two giving them 18th place in 52:41. Esme Wilson had a great race finishing two places later in 54:43 followed directly by Ross Penwill just seven seconds later and Steve Briggs 16 seconds after him.

Mark Dallyn couldn’t get his head or legs round this race at all finishing 26th in 56:03 just ahead of John Burgess in 56:27 and Tim Wigram in 56:52. Linda Pike loves this run and finished strongly in 37th place in 1:04:50 followed by fellow lover of the race, Pete Lyus in 42nd place in 1:06:15. Kathy Layzell enjoys this sort of challenge and came 46th in 1:08:30 closely followed by Carol Turnham in 48th place in 1:11:33. Entries were low this year with just 50 finishers enjoying the delicious curry and chips upon their return.
