THE Mount Bay Harriers Triathlon and Running Club, hosted the Killerton Kanter last weekend, writes Bob Woodall.
The event was staged on a warm summers evening with over one hundred athletes on the start line for a ten kilometre cross country race around the grounds of Killerton House.
The first one and one half kilometres proved very rough under foot with the next, similar distance being very dusty.
There after the route proved to rise and fall as it made its way through the shade of the woods.
The down hill stretch to the finished followed the course of a twisting path.
This race was attended by four Exmouth Harriers, Mike Musgrove, Adam Miller, Jim Wyatt and Dawn Teed.
Unfortunately for Mike Musgrove he set off at a fast pace, along with another runner. Mike looked that he was likely to take the winning spot but somehow managed to take a wrong turn along the course and therefore excluded from the finishing results.
The first place was awarded to Kerry Roberts, from the Tiverton Harriers, who completed the course in a time of exactly 40 minutes. Adam Miller finished in overall fifth position in a time of 41:13.
The first female athlete to complete the course was Magdalen Miller, in overall 22nd place, of the North Devon Road Runners in a time of 45:36.
Jim Wyatt finished in 68th position in a time of 54:23, he being the 5th in the V60 age category. Dawn Teed completed the Exmouth set finishing in 89th position in a time of 57:40 and being seventh in the FV45 age category.
The final athlete to complete the course was Anita Harris in a time of 1:2:25.
