A team of eight Mighty Greens (MG) took part in the Bradleys Exmouth 10k, raced on the final Sunday of September, writes Hamish Spence.

This event takes the competitors along the seafront and back, so it is a pancake flat race and is known for competitors being able to gain personal bests.

The Sidmouth runners took full advantage of this venue and did themselves proud.

Theo Burgess was the first MG to cross the finish line, taking a whole three minutes from his previous year’s time, giving him a new personal best of 39:17, which left him finishing 10th overall.

The next MG home was Antony Hall, who blasted his way round in a time of 39:58, finishing 17th.
