Wood and Clist lead AVR runners home in the High Ways and Sky Ways event

PUBLISHED: 16:48 18 September 2013

The AVR event High Ways and Sky Ways offered a choice of 18, 13 or eight-mile self-navigating routes through some lovely scenery east from Charmouth in aid of the primary school, writes Dave Mutter.

Many runners got back before the rain arrived, but all suffered the strong winds conspiring against them.

The 18-mile winner was Royal Navy ACs Iain Robert in 3:05 and first AVR was John Larcombe. Eleanor Wood, Matt Clist, Phil Bayliss and Geoff Woodward ran together with Wood and Clist pushing ahead to finish in 3:55, Bayliss a minute later and Woodward huffin’ and puffin’ his way across the line another minute later.

Tim and James Sibley ran together in 4:15. The 13-miler was won by AVRs Clare Hansford and Margaret Pearce in 2:36 with Anna McLoughlin finishing in 2:38, Alan Morbey in 2:39 and Mark Nevell in 2:44. Janette Mack, Janet Woodward and Liz and Dave Thomas ran the eight-miler in 2:28.
