Bideford 10 miles – Sunday 6th November


Sunday the 6th November was the date of the final race in the 3 race series hosted by Bideford AAC . This was the ten mile course from Bideford crossing the historic Old Bridge and heading out to Fremington through Instow and back along the Tarka trail. Runners were taken past the Marine Commando training base disused rail lines and through tunnels and stations.
This flat fast course enabled the team of five Mounts Bay Harriers to chase PBs and there was a first place in age group for Sue Taylor. Damian Cook and Ruth Glover battled it out over the 10 miles with age and strength holding off the ever present challenge from Miss Glover with only 4 seconds separating them on the line.
These races have all been friendly and well organised with sell out entries and Mounts Bay will be heading to North Devon again.
