Taking part or helping out in the Tipton Jackie Box Fun Run on Saturday, were eight Sidmouth Running Club (SRC) juniors all of which were proudly wearing the Mighty Green, writes Kerry Boyle.

Three of them; Elsie Wiltshire, Seth Lancaster and Dominic Hall, had participated in the recent FUNdementals in athletics course.

The other five all have parents or siblings who are SRC members.

The more experienced of the group started off steadily, knowing that it was a mile and not to sprint off too fast across the playing fields at Tipton.

The next part along the river was harder to negotiate through the cow field and rabbit holes, but despite a few trips and ankle twists they picked themselves up and all completed the run back along the old train track to the Tipton playing fields.
