Behind the scenes at the 2013 Grizzly,.
After having all that gloop removed by the Seaton so-responders, and munching a Tesco banana, many runners took advantage of the massage offered by Guy Sweetman and helpers from Seaton based East Devon Sports Therapy & General Injury clinic to sooth aching limbs at the 2013 Grizzly, writes Dave Mutter.
If the runners had it tough, then spare a thought for all the marshals lead by Rick Wood, back markers, drink station helpers, musicians and spectators around the course who once again came up trumps despite the severe weather.
All runners when asked what the best bit of the run was picked out the marshals for praise.
Special thanks to all the grizzly committee headed by Garry Perratt for all their really hard work in putting on this successful prestigious race that will raise thousands of pounds for various charities.
Many of these people like Chris Irving and Bernard Fry are not seen on race day as they are out on the course checking and clearing.
