Last Sunday, Howard Bidmead of Honiton Running Club organised a social event for the Club and other invited runners, writes Judy Davey.

The weather was typical for Exmoor being very wet which was disappointing considering the wonderful weather we have been enjoying lately.

Nevertheless, 44 runners and several dogs set off from West Anstey Village Hall to run across Exmoor for the 10-mile mainly off road route.

The Moor was wet underfoot and by the time runners had completed the distance, they were thoroughly soggy and much in need of the excellent refreshments awaiting them.

The event was enjoyed by all who took part and no-one managed to get lost! Huge thanks to Howard (and others he had roped into help) for a thoroughly enjoyable morning.

This was the old Yeo Mill Yomp race route and maybe next year Howard will decide to resurrect the race itself.
