ROLL up to raise money for Pudsey Bear!

Entries have already started to arrive, including the male winner Peter Monaghan from Torbay AAC, who won in a time of 26.39 and the female winner 16-year-old Naomi Speake from Seaton, who runs with the Bristol and West RC and completed the course in a time of 28.42 Entry forms for the five mile race can be downloaded from www.axevalleyrunners.org.uk or by phoning (01297) 553743.
