Another full club outing took place recently when the Sidmouth Running Club juniors took part in the Beer Blazer fun run, whilst the adult members ran the 10-mile route. 

Junior coach Kerry Boyle said: “The Juniors were great again today at the hilly Beer Blazer fun run! Eleven ran in total and first home for the Mighty Greens was Isaac Corfield (2nd place), closely followed by Aidan Corfield, Ella Bond was 1st girl, with Dom Hall next, then Seth and Flynn Lancaster, William Hall, Hamish Bishop, John Dunsford, Ben Barnard and Louis Bridges-Galvez.” 

Club chairman Terry Bewes found the 10-mile course a lot different to the 10km one he ran last time describing it as brutal with some lovely views!  

The race takes in parts of both the Grizzly and Cub routes and areas you can only run in this race. Mighty Green David King finished first in his age category in 1:53:35 and Carol Hounsell was back on form and thoroughly enjoyed the run. 

Beer Blazer results: Pete Norman 21st o/a 1:45:04, David King 1:53:35 , Stuart Moul 2:00:01, Sue Collman 2:19:03, Sarah Clapham 2:19:06, Carol Hounsell 2:41:20 3rd in age group, Sarah Watkins 2:41:21, Terry Bewes 2:47:42 2nd in age group.  

There were 91 finishers.
