Does anyone fancy running half of the Exe to Axe as a relay ? I am happy to do either of the halves Helen ... See MoreSee Less
I think John D wants to?
Sorry Helen, we're not around that day x
Yaaay look at you all! Well done team!
Not all Monica Read some never made the photo
Well done all!!
Brilliant, all of you
Suppose I’ll have to pay subs now for that photo-bomb...
Sorry to miss another photo! David, Els, Jim and I were just too slow. I saw Julian too, apparently he was last to finish the start line!
Great photo- what a year to remember !

Great effort Greg Ward and John Sharples .Fantastic !!
Team photo? Did I miss it?
I think I spotted myself in this one.
The Grizzly 2018. What an absolutely brilliant day, a once in a life time experience. Huge respect to race director Tony Smith for the very difficult decisions he took and all his helpers, especially the marshalls who were amazing, stuck out there in freezing blizzard conditions at times and so supportive to the 1200 runners who started. The drive home was quite an experience too. Was it worth the t-shirt, Absolutely YES.
Thank you to Terry Ife and all the others who's photos I have used. ... See MoreSee Less
Bloody amazing race / day !
Was awesome, so glad I did it. Thank you so much for your company on the way round 😁
It was definitely a memorable day! First time I did the Grizzly, and it definitely made an impression. So glad to have a priority place for next year on top of a great day out.
It was an amazing day! And hopefully we will have a first lady joining us soon!
It looked amazing 😉⛄️❄️

Late Sidmouth entry for the Grizzly! Didn't take long to loose his shoes! ... See MoreSee Less
Are they skis or shoes?
The seasonal mascot.😁
Colin has a cold today and that is what you get when you don't wear your socks
Given that the snow hasn't fallen yet I wonder what everyone is planning to do... ... See MoreSee Less
I'm mostly worried about getting out of Seaton afterwards, seems a lot of the snow is yet to come over there. Such a shame😟
I’ve gone for sidmouth run and then cake!xxx
Given the met office warning of multiple hours of heavy snow, I think it would be too risky to try and make it there and back. Local run for me!
We did think, if there’s a group of us, maybe doing some of the 4 Trigs???
Drive to the grizzly provided its still on . Then run back and eat cake 😨 🤔
No beer options?
We have a fair bit of snow in branscombe, my concern is getting out and back in again
Its still on
Seems fine now but more snow all afternoon, I'm starting to think it's not wise to risk driving over, especially after last time it snowed it took me 2+hours to get home from Seaton. Think I might stay put ☹️
Anyone up for a valley run?xx
Terry Bewes you the boss what do we do
I’ve changed my vote, I’m staying home. Don’t want to get snowed in at Seaton. 😞
I'm going to Seaton to run, if the marshals are going to man the route then I'm going to run it. Roads looking clear in Seaton
Just back from an 18 miler round the valley! Hope everyone gets out and back safe x
I did 10.7 miles to Ottery and back the long way. It was great until the last mile in the blizzard. Hope everyone gets home safe.
Good decision made by those who didn't travel I'm stuck at trow Hill and will be walking home

JP’s Exe to Axe 2018 YOUR Club needs you. We need a number of marshals to help us giving out water, directing runners etc. Can you spare a couple of hours, without marshals we Do NOT have a race. 8th April. If you can help please add your name to the comment and Terry Bewes will be in touch. Please Please help us if you can partners and family welcome ... See MoreSee Less
Happy to help, it’s a lot less painful than running it!
I'm sorry but I'm away for the weekend running in Wales, such a great run.
I emailed Terry today, happy to help...
I'm hoping to run it this year
I can help - would prefer to be Sidmouth / Axmouth as Jus running second half x
Karen and I can do the number checking at Budleigh again like last year Paul.
Thank you David and Karen I will be in touch after the AGM
So sorry, David's running the Taunton marathon that day, so we're out there.
You might already have me down, if not add me to do whatever you like.
I am happy to do the Sandy Bay marshalling and then get a run in myself home
Sorry I'm running the Manchester Marathon.
I’m running too, so can’t help out I’m afraid
Terry , I am fine for either Foxes Corner or Jacob's ladder zig zag.
Thanks John will be in touch
Am running it but will ask my husband, I’ll see if the you g ones have rugby still-if not maybe sidmouth junior rugby could man an area?

Terry Bewes didnt find God this year, but instead found his prince charming 😂 ... See MoreSee Less
Each to his own I guess ☺️
He wasn't a prince he was a king thank you
That’s what they all say
where's his sword? Part of Grizzly tradition still upheld despite the challenging conditions. Might have to do the full Grizzly next year now!
Well done all of you👍
