Making his debut for the club and at the distance was Peter Fletcher. The field was 105 strong (around 49 being women) and rather spread out at the front, over five minutes (more than three-quarters of a mile) covering the first ten home.

Peter would have been pleased to finish in that first ten, he was sixth in 38:07, but in a bigger field with more athletes around him to work off he could expect a big improvement on that inaugural Personal Best.

Next in from the Exmouth club was Dave Eveleigh in 57th place, in a somewhat disappointing time of 50:51. Roger Rowe was 68th in 53:04.

There was a time when Roger would have expected to be in front of Dave, even with the younger runner at his best.

Hard to say whether various sporting activities over the years have contributed to the problems which restrict his running these days but it would be hard to imagine Roger having too many regrets as he enjoyed the event a whole!

Also at this new 10K was Mike Musgrove in the demanding role of Guide Runner to a visually impaired athlete.
