Twenty-seven members of Sidmouth Running Club took part in the 2015 Bicton Blister, writes Sarah Watkins.

The event was run in blustery conditions – thus making it a ‘blustery Bicton Blister!’

The event is a 10-mile, multi-terrain race on Woodbury Common. It starts, and finished, at Bicton College.

Both the start and finish sections are fast-paced road runs, with the rest of the race taking runners along sandy, stony and muddy paths.

There were two races on offer; the Bicton Blister and the Bicton Lite, the latter a 4.5mile race with the same start and finish, just less distance overall, but still mighty challenging!

Toby Garrick was the first Sidmouth runner home, finishing in a time of 30:18. he was well ahead of the second Sidmouth runner across the line. That was Damian Doyle (36:25).

Other club runners to record times inside one hour were; Jayne Drew (39:59), Katie Marriott (46:48), Chris Doyle (47:31), Pauline Doyle (50:53), Brian Gosling (55:46), Lesley Miszenska (56:26), Sue Cunningham (56:37) and William Valentine (58:18).
