The Charmouth Challenge usually takes place in July but due to extreme weather conditions which would have made the run dangerous; it was postponed until last Sunday. The run goes through some spectacular coastal scenery with amazing views and the 8 mile route includes an ascent of Golden Cap. This is the highest point on the south coast of England forming part of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Despite the perfect weather conditions numbers were depleted because of the move but there was still plenty of support along the route. Bruce Strawbridge was first back for Honiton finishing in 18th place and delighted with his time of 1:05:46. Howard Bidmead fresh back from a holiday in Turkey also had a great race to finish in 28th position in 1:11:58. Judy Davey was the only female Honiton representative and she was pleased with her 40th place finishing in 1:15:59. The winner was Kyle Hackett who managed the obscenely speedy time of 54:40.
