Honiton Running Club (HRC) were well represented at the 21-mile, Sidmouth Running Club’s, Exe to Axe race which takes runners from Exmouth sea front through Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Branscombe and finishes in Seaton, writes Judy Davey.

This year the route was extended to take in the entire length of Seaton sea front.

As you would expect of a coastal run there were many steep climbs and descents and the course was very muddy at times, but, of course, there were also spectacular views. Alasdair Moffett led HRC home to come 19th in a time of three hours 26 minutes and he was followed by Steve Davey who came 47th in 3:49.

Paula Ferris was the first of the HRC ladies back coming 129th in 4:38. Richard Terry came next 132nd in 4:43 and Tim Wigram followed soon after coming 137th in 4:45. For Clare Melbourne, it was the last long training run before London Marathon and she came 169th in 5:07.

Sharon Wells completed the line-up coming 176th in 5:12.
