A break from the rain and spring was definitely in the air and in the step of South Devon AC runners as members new and old made the most of local races and parkruns.

First Chance 10k in Exeter is always a good gauge to fitness at the start of the year and fifteen SDAC members were up to the challenge in sunny and icy conditions, great to see Dave Naish back to enjoying racing after injury.

Matthew Dalton won the Plym trail half...
