The 2.5k Fun Run attracted a record entry of 53 and was won by George Tomkins of Honiton RC in a record time of 9:53.

Second home was Tom Perry of AVR in 11:22 and third was Jack Pellow of AVR also in 11:22.

The second girl was Isabella Pellow of Charmouth Primary School in 12:27, and ninth overall with the third girl being AVRs Izzie Coman in about 14:10. It was great to see so many runners of all ages and sizes - some very small!

After the runs, there was a bar, barbecue, hot drinks and lots of delicious cakes made by the local community.

Thank you, to everyone who helped with this, and of course to Eleanor Wood for organising the race on the day as well as her many other jobs. It would appear that a profit of about £1,140 was made for the hall funds. Well done, and thank you. See you all next year!
