Exmouth Harriers run well at Royal Haldon Trail Race

11:20 24 July 2014

There were several locations for Exmouth Harriers’ activity on the week-end of July 12 and 13, writes Dave Eveleigh.

At the Ironbridge Runner Royal Haldon Trail Race, an event run on the Saturday evening over a five mile course, Andrew Johnson continued his good year by finishing first man in the Over-50 category and 16th overall with his time being 36:51.

One place ahead of Johnson was Chris Dupain with his fifth spot finish coming from a time of 36:00.

Also on the Saturday was the Otter Rail and River Run, in aid of playing field maintenance at Tipton St John. There Hannah Bown was 24th overall in 45:27 and second woman.

Richard Pyle was 42nd in 48:44. What competition there is amongst the ever extending ranks (and definition of) older veterans now! Mick Allen was 128th in 66:50, but only third Over-70. Well over 100 finished this one.

On the Sunday Richard Bishop tackled what was once the staple diet of the road runner, a 10-miler, now much less common. Richard was 12th of just under 100 in 66:12.
