Dartmoor Vale 1/2M

Sibelco Dartmoor Vale Half

Two of our newer Club members Louise and Steve Saunders smartly kitted out in their newly acquired Mighty Green Vest couldn’t wait to test them out in a race, so off they went to the Dartmoor Vale Half Marathon.

This is a road race organised by the Rotary Club of Dartmoor Vale. The start and finish is at Sibelco, East Gold Works, Newton Abbot. The run heads out to Kingsteignton on to Chudleigh Knighton then into Chudleigh and back to Newton Abbot. There is also a marathon which is another lap and a 10k race.

Both were pleased to come in within two hours as it was rather a hilly course. Steve came home in 1:59:50 and Louise in 1:59:51. However the results sheet shows Louise as the first Club runner home and Steve second. Must have been a lady doing the results!!!!! Ooops. There were 197 finishers.
