Wind rain and general murkiness did not stop Three Mighty Greens from competing in the Templer Ten on Sunday 4th November. This 10-mile race is predominantly an off-road, on tracks and trails cross country event, organised by Teignbridge Trotters Running Club. Twins Karen and Christine Farnham, along with John Doherty lined up in the grounds of Stover School near Newton Abbott.
At 11 o’clock they set off out into the countryside and headed for Stover Park and the fields of Teigngrace. With the windy and wet conditions the route was muddy and slippery. All three did well with Christine finishing 2nd in the FV55 category in 1h32m35s, giving her the 168th place over all, followed shortly after by sister Karen who attained a time of 1h:32m:46s and 171st place. John, who has completed this race five times managed a spritely 224th position in a time of 1h:44m:16s. There was a very good turnout of competitors with 268 finishers.
