Sidmouth Running Club duo Jessica Raynor and Sarah Watkins ran at the Oh My Obelisk race on the middle Sunday of January, writes Hamish Spence.

This multi-terrain event is organised by The Dawlish Coasters and promises mud and hills with fields, woodland tracks, some country lanes and good views.

It started and finished at the Dawlish Leisure Centre with the competitors setting off at 10:30am.

The ground was fairly dry for the most part, with some blue skies and light winds, giving very good running conditions.

Jessica took on the half marathon distance, completing it in a time of 1:43 and Sarah completed the nine-mile race in a time of 1:53.

Both ladies enjoyed the route saying it was very hilly and hard, and good but challenging fun.
