With many medium and long distance events coming up over the next few months, the Autumn training program is in full swing now, writes Hamish Spence.

So, it is of no surprise that the dampness of Sunday morning didn’t put off one K9 and 19 members of Sidmouth Running Club from the mornings session.

They met in Newton Poppleford and were led by Helen Palmer from the tennis courts car park, up into the Harpford woods to the Bowd where they joined and followed the old railway track to Tipton St John.

The route the takes the runners along the River Otter, across some fields to Fluxton and into the country lanes to Venn Ottery and Sotherton.

There was a lot of good off road running including Aylesbeare Common. This was an eight mile loop with something for everyone, enjoyed by all and more importantly, done and dusted before the weather set in.
