On Good Friday, Honiton Running Club managed a fantastic turnout at Kilmington Primary School’s Kilmington Kanter, writes Judy Davey.

The race starts on the playing fields and runners are taken through Shute and close to Umborne before coming back through Seaton Junction. There is a fair amount of road but plenty of tracks, fields and styles and even a footbridge over the railway line.

There are two very challenging hills of a mile each with the rest being mainly flat or down hill. Honiton’s James Denne won the race in the swift time of 41 minutes 54 seconds. Kevin Hawker was next back for Honiton winning his age category to come seventh in 44:43.

Ian Stewart hasn’t raced for a while, but came 11th in 47:24. Tim Legg followed coming 19th in 49:20 and then came Findlay Fulle. two places later in 51:36. Richard Harris led a crowd of Honiton runners home who ended up very close together.

Richard was 36th in 54:27, Richard Harvey and David Hawker took the next twoplaces in 54:38 and 54:44 respectively. Another runner took 39th place, but Honiton’s Dan Strawbridge, Rod Inglis and Ceri Oak took the next three spots finishing in 56:03, 56:10 and 56:27. Steve Davey was next coming 44th in 56:55 followed by Mark Dallyn 48th in 57:38. Judy Davey came 54th in 58:48 and Paula Ferris came 57th managing to finish just under the hour in 59:47.
