Devon Schools

Toby Leads From The Front
Toby Garrick took part in the Devon Schools Cross Country Championships at the Stover School on Sat the 19th in the Senior Boys Category. With a race distance of 6.4km Toby had an average pace of 5:28 minute miles and finished in a fast 21m:44s, In-fact he was 2 minutes quicker this time than in the previous years attempt. He won with a very good distance between himself and the second finisher, with at least 120 metres separating them. Toby had decided to try a new racing strategy of leading from the front, This new tactic kept him clear of the pack for two out of the three long laps. His next race will be the South West Schools Championships in Bath on the 2nd February. 
Taking part in the same race was another young Mighty Green runner Will Ashby and a fellow Sidmouth school colleague (non MG but part of the team), Will took the 12th place over all and their colleague came in 15th making Sidmouth the team winners over all. 
Also running in the girls intermediates and seniors race was Kate Marriott Race. Her race went well, coming in 11th place over all. This secures her as the reserve for Nationals! Well done Kate.

Otter run form 2016

This popular multi-terrain 10km and 1.5 mile fun run, held under ARC rules, attracted a record entry last year and we’re hoping 2016 will be even better.

We’re delighted to again be sponsored by Otter Brewery – with a pint of Otter Bitter for thirsty finishers – also Michelmores Solicitors and Harrison-Lavers and Potbury’s, both of Sidmouth.

Camping is available on the field on Friday and Saturday night – prior booking is essential for the restricted number of pitches so an early reservation is advised. We hope to welcome back many of our first-time campers from last year, and also see some new faces.

Camping rates are as last year – £5 per pitch (add £2.50 per extra person) per night.

The timing for the event will be as for 2015, with the fun run setting off first at 10.30am and the 10km at 11am – both following the same courses as in recent years.

We have extra parking and extra toilets at the nearby village hall, which will also be the venue for any on the day entries, if there’s space permitting. Last year we had a record 226 entries, this year entries will be restricted to 250 maximum.

There will be individual, team and veteran prizes and a few extras too to celebrate it being our 10th year.

To book camping or for more information on the event contact organiser Jo Earlam, email jo.earlam@hotmail.co.uk or ring 01404 813313.
