Several Honiton Running Club members took part in the Bicton Blister last Sunday based at Bicton College, writes Judy Davey.

This is a 10-mile multi-terrain race which takes runners across Woodbury Common.

Roland Hall was first back for Honiton in 22nd place in one hour 10 minutes with Ian Stewart following five minutes later in 48th place.

Tom Bornet’s running is getting better and better with every race and he ran well to come 74th in 1:19.

Steve Davey managed to keep Richard Harvey behind him for this race finishing just 15 seconds ahead of him both being given the time of 1:20.

Davey was 83rd and Harvey 85th. Julie Payne continued the success of last week to win her age category finishing in 1:23 in 115th place. Howard Bidmead also had a good run finishing 119th 27 seconds later. Mark Dallyn had a much better run than last year to come 137th in 1:25 and Judy Davey was the only other lady Honiton runner coming 152nd in 1:27 also managing to win her category. It was Steve Briggs’ first time on the course and he found it much tougher than last week’s Drogo race. He finished 193rd in 1:30. Tony Peek raced for the club for the first time and enjoyed the course to finish 229th in 1:34. There were 431 finishers and the winner was Andrew Chambers of Bristol in 1:01. Thanks to Exmouth Harriers and all the supportive marshals for a well organised event.
