Sidmouth Running Club's pre-Christmas Otterton based off-road 10km Reindeer Run and a 3km Fun Run held alongside it had a total number of finishers of over 400 last Saturday, writes Dave Eveleigh.
A healthy number of Exmouth Harriers were on the start line at Otterton.
The Musgrove Family were out in force and remarkably Exmouth Harrier Mike won the main (10km) race while son Finn (running as an under-11), was first across the line in the 3km Fun Run, leaving runners five years his senior behind. Mike’s time over the 10km route was 39:19.
Other Exmouth Harriers running 10km were Jon Garrity in sixth place with a time of 43:04, Richard Pyle 19th (47:37) and Lisa Hatchard 45th (52:36).
The fun run results have surnames popping up in pairs and threes or more, suggesting a family approach to that event. As well as the Musgroves family finishers with Exmouth Harrier connections included the Bowns, Garritys and Hawes.
