Sidmouth Running Club’s David Skinner tried a different parkrun last weekend, taking part in the Haldon Forest Parkrun, writes Hamish Spence.

This was his 99th parkrun and he completed it in a time of 34:36, finishing 136th out of the 168 that took part.

Speaking after the run, David said: “You get lulled into a false sense of security by the gentle start and then the narrow steep climb hits you!

“On the second lap you think, oh good, we don’t do that climb this time round, only to be met with a different steep climb!”

We look forward to reporting on his 100th parkrun!
