The Haytor Heller took place last Sunday and this is a favourite of some Honiton runners. It consists of 6 miles of breathtaking off-road running in the heart of Dartmoor. It has a tough start with the start line being half way up the hill to Haytor Rock. The course is then predictably hilly taking in Hound Tor but it has a fast downhill finale to the finish at the bottom of Haytor Rock. The stony ground makes the terrain tough going but spectacular views make up for this. Bruce Strawbridge led the Honiton runners home coming 44th in 52:33. Howard Bidmead came 63rd in 56:04 and the lady representatives Clare Melbourne and Tracey Strawbridge came 217th and 222nd respectively. Clare finished less than a minute ahead of Tracey in 1:15:42 with Tracey finishing in 1:16:16. There were 257 finishers and Arran Tockwell won the race in 42:04.
