Saturday was South Devon AC’s turn to host a race with the challenging Coleton Footacher. There are plenty of hills but there was great scenery and cheery marshalls to distract from the pain! There was also a mile fun run which was part of the clubs juniors Grand Prix. Well done and thank you to all club members and friends and family that turned out to help and support the race.
A mix of races for club members running this weekend with the usual suspects at parkruns and others running longer distances.
Heather Maddock continued her build up to Race to the Stones with a great run at the Hampshire Hoppit trail marathon with Steve Maddock continuing his comeback by running the half. Stuart Batten and Michelle Coles also ran the Hoppit with a great time from Stuart.
Steph Bartlett ran the Jurassic Coast Challenge first half which is 58km of challenging and hilly coast path.
In the Juniors at the Footacher mile Francis Hayes and Lauren Carr took the tops spots.
