Race goes like a breeze for pair

By Tim Leigh in Athletics

The disappointment of a cancelled Torbay Velopark Parkrun due to flooding didn’t stop two runners from Brixham Harriers stretching their legs this weekend.

Nikki Shaw and Simon Ridley travelled to Exmouth on Sunday, to compete in the Fulfords five-mile race.

This took place on a mostly flat course with a long straight section along the sea front, where the chilly Feb­ruary breeze was most keenly felt by the runners.

Simon came 66th in a time of 34.39 and Nikki came 187th in 45.42. There were a total of 239 finishers.

Meanwhile, Abi Mc­Rae enjoyed her first sprint distance Aquathlon on Sunday, in race one of the 2017 Dawlish Sprint and Novice Aquathon series.
