Honiton Junior members took part in the two-and-a-half mile Charmouth Mini Challenge, writes Judy Davey.

Henry Riddle ran superbly to finish second overall in a great time of 22 minutes 24 seconds.

The Juniors were also taken up the gruelling Stone Barrow Lane although spared Golden Cap.

Arthur Heeler-Frood was ninth overall in 24:13 and Flo Swan was firts girl back for Honiton in 10th place in 24:38.

Sam Taylor was next back in 12th place in 25:27 followed by Hope Horsfield who came 16th in 27:36.

Iain Ross would usually have been one of the first few back, but he was sent the wrong way by a marshal!

He ran up an extra section of a hill before having to run back down to continue the correct route.

He was given a position of 30th place in 35:55. There were 34 finishers.

Once back at Charmouth School runners were treated to a welcome hosing down and a Fete put on by the School where delicious and welcome refreshments were on offer.
