Race Report – Langstone Preview and Devon trials

A small but superb field of runners took part on April 3rd late afternoon race at Peter Tavy.


Ten juniors competed across three distances. Superb running from Stanley Wood who took a big lead and was well ahead before taking a wrong turn on the descent adding a big chunk of distance. great character for finishing.

Senior Race

18 runners from a wide range of clubs made this a very competitive race. The course has an unrelenting start with 260m gain in first 2.5k but a very fast last 4k.

Brisk start
Great running from First Lady home
they started fast!
Course record and first place Ceri Rees
Just a few seconds behind and Sam Delling TAC and RM runner
Chasing hard U20 Jamie Frost EVH
5th and 6th working hard but Simon Evans TAC/Dartmoor runners holding it

Front 2 had a tight race with Sam leading until the last descent where the pace and experience of Ceri just edged it.
