Kilmington Kanter & Fast Friday 10k
Kilmington Kanter saw record numbers take part on Good Friday and this was made up of a good turnout of Honiton runners. This multi-terrain course is just short of 7 miles and takes in a variety of tracks, woodland and 2 challenging hills. The race was won by 17 year old Ollie Caute in 44 minutes 8 seconds and the lady winner was Flo Swan who is also a 17 year old Axe Valley Runner. She came 20th in 50:53. Adam Hennessey was first back for HRC coming 12th in 48:56 and he was followed by Nick Silkstone coming 15th in 49:27. New HRC runner Mark Newson showed what he was made of to come 29th in 53:29. Richard Harvey followed coming 32nd in 54:26. Steve Davey and Alasdair Moffatt had a good battle throughout with Steve managing to come just one second ahead of Alasdair in 34th place and 54:55. The next 5 runners were very close throughout the race swapping positions many times with Paula Ferris leading them and the other HRC ladies home to come 49th in 57:13. Mark Dallyn has been out of the racing scene for a while but did well to come 52nd in 58:01. Judy and Jo Davey followed directly behind with Judy 8 seconds later and Jo just 1 second after her. Judy took home a very nice hamper for winning her age category. Richard Terry has shown huge improvement recently and knocked over 10 minutes off his time from last year. He came 57th in 58:54. Tim Wigram came 69th in1:00:53, Nicola Greenland 74th in 1:02:34, Howard Bidmead 75th in 1:02:50, Joe Daly 120th in 1:14:04 and Claire Rouse 122nd in 1:14:32. There were 136 finishers.
Honiton had great success in the Fun Run with Phoebe Clark coming 1st female and 2nd overall in 21:04. Her sister Alice also won her category coming 8th overall in 23:15 and 3rd overall female. There were 42 finishers.
Three HRC runners opted for the flat river Exe tow path rather than the hills of Kilmington on Good Friday in a bid to boost their 10K times. The Fast Friday 10K is part of the Instep Devon race series and was sold out quickly. The 2 lap course along the River Exe was flat except for the bridges. Roger Saunders entered at the last minute as a member was suffering an ailment and gifted her place to him. He came in 64th and first in the V60 category in 46:53 so this keeps him in the running for the overall lead in this category for the Instep Devon race series. Katy Campbell was not far behind in 72nd place in 48:22 and Rachel Hennessey was 92nd in 50:56. Ben Stone running for Tiverton came in with a very swift time of 40:32. The race was won by Phil Wylie of Cheltenham Harriers in 31:30.
Mon-Wed nights meet at 6:30 at Honiton Community College to share cars unless driving direct to venue.
