Dalwood Fayre 10k a winner

On Wednesday evening, five Teignbridge Trotters attended the inaugural Dalwood Fayre 10k, which was organised with the assistance of the Axe Valley Runners. Marshalling and water provision was excellent and the event shows great promise for the future.

Famed for the challenging Dalwood 3 Hills race, competitors were under no illusions as they left the start line outside the 13th Century Tuckers Arms. The villagers turned out in force to encourage the 62 runners as they laboured over the steeply graded multi terrain course, in quite humid conditions.

Mark Wotton was first Trotter home, 15th overall in a time of 53:07. Matthew Dunn put in a sterling performance and crossed the line 19th in a very commendable time of 54:16. Third Trotter was Graham Penn, 21st in 54:57, followed by Dave Dunn 28th in 56:00 and Stephen Wallace 41st in a time of 1:01:30.
