Treggy 7 a challenge for the Honiton team

PUBLISHED: 11:34 07 September 2011


On the first Sunday of September, several Honiton runners took part in the Treggy 7, writes Judy Davey.

This is a 7-mile road run around Launceston and Honiton’s own ‘Treggy 7’, plus supporter Jo Davey, ventured across the border into Cornwall to run this challenging race which attracted 375 entrants.

Bruce Strawrbidge had yet another cracking run and came 48th in 47 minutes 44 seconds. Steve Davey was disappointed to come in quite so far behind Bruce but he still managed 83rd place in 50:38.

Judy Davey was next back and was very pleased with her efforts coming 130th in 54:07. She was pleased to have kept ahead of Nick Bradley-Carter whose favourite terrain is road. He came 160th in 55:17.

Olivia Higginson enjoyed the unfamiliar Cornish scenery and thought the castle was spectacular – she doesn’t get out of Devon much! She came 276th in 1:05:14.

Launceston is old stomping ground for Tracey Strawbridge and she was more than happy to give her team mates a commentary during the car journey.

She came 331st in 1:11:48. Vanessa Glyn-Jones admitted she had quite enjoyed the run and would have probably enjoyed it even more if she’d been a bit fitter but she was still pleased with her 348th place in 1:15:11.
