There was a new run on the circuit last Sunday – ‘Mrs E’s Big Wheeze’, a 10K multi terrain run based around Mrs Ethelston’s Primary School in Uplyme, writes Dave Mutter.

Uplyme was scenic, but challenging in places - the first mile was almost all uphill and the last 100m began gently up and finished very up.

The two’ish kilometre junior race round the playing fields, Mrs E’s Little Wheeze, was won by Ollie Caute in 5:46.

Adam Burrough was fifth in 6:43, Max Bowskill sixth in 7:03 and Matt Thurgood seventh in 7:08.

The Big Wheeze was won in 36:13 by Tim Hartley who happened to be on holiday in the area.

This was a seriously impressive time since second-placed Matt Clist was nearly two minutes behind in 38:08. Tim Lenton was third in 39:34 after running at Haytor the night before, Rupert Pady 7th 44:16, Robin Britton 15th 47:36, Geoff Woodward 24th 52:55, Retro Reynolds 27th 53:37 and Siobhan Reddy 30th 57:45.

Thanks to Eleanor Wood, Janet Woodward, Garry Perratt and Paul Johns for helping out the organisers at this great new event.
