Sunday, 29th September saw the running of this year’s Doone Run. This was the 30th anniversary and for one year only the race was run in reverse. The race organised by North Devon Road Runners is probably the most scenic and toughest 10 mile race in Devon with over 2000 metres of climb. Starting in Lynmouth runners ran up the zig zag path underneath the Lynton to Lynmouth Cliff Railway followed by a descent of the coast path at Valley of the Rocks. The race then climbed the Cleave above Lynmouth and the runners were greeted with superb views of the North Devon coast. The race finished with a run along the path from Watersmeet back to Lynmouth. Howard Bidmead from Honiton RC had a good race finishing in 1hr. 37m and took the trophy for 1st male O55.
