Trotters on a challenge

Red Devon running events challenge took place on the Saturday 3rd February and the Sunday the 4th. Each lap is 5.3k out and back, a scenic route on an old disused train line in Exmouth. This event has a 7 hour cut off to do as many laps as you would like. 1 lap is 5.3k so 4 laps will give you a half marathon, 8 laps will give you full marathon distance, 9 or more laps for an Ultra. Graydon Widdicombe was our sole representative on the Saturday, Graydon quoted. Saturday it was perfect conditions for running. It’s a surprisingly undulating course and I was pleased with my effort, finishing in a time of 3:54:03 and 1st out of 16.  On Sunday Cheryl Dunn and Vicky Hales put on the shirt and did us proud, Cheryl doing 4 laps hence a half marathon and finishing in a time of 02:25:33 and 5th out of 10. Whilst Vicky did 2 laps in a time of 01:28:32 and finished 4th out of 6. Well done all.
