Silverwear at the Muskie Madness

Jacki Woon and Paul Sharples took the plaudits for the Teignbridge Trotters as both won age group prizes at a sizzling hot Muskie Madness in Saltash at the weekend.

Hosted by Plymouth Musketeers on Saturday 30 June, conditions were hot on a very hilly 10k course which meant personal bests were highly unlikely, if not impossible.

Still, Jacki Woon was the first F55 in 53:16 and club-mate Paul Sharples took the M60 prize finishing in 50:44. There was also a top 10 finish for Geoff Davey, who placed 10thin 43:41.

After the race, Woon said: “A lot of us struggled with the heat. But ice pops at the finish were very welcome - and better than pasties which I hear were given in a previous year!”

The Trotters finisher were as follows: Geoff Davey (43:41, 10th) Christina Robinson (46:39, 15th) Paul Sharples (50:44, 27th) Derek Skinner (52:16, 34th) Jacki Woon (53:16, 39th), Sarah Pike (55:35, 57th), Kathryn Steemson (56:11, 63rd), Neil Rutley (56:16, 64th) and Paul Johns (58:58, 84th).


The club’s also hosted the Sandygate Loop for club members on Friday in Kingsteignton. Over the four mile course, Kevin Woodward was first male home in 23:10 and in-form Jacki Woon was the leading lady in 28:24.
