55 entrants for successful inaugral Rotary Club event
Jay Horton won the first Bideford Rotary Club Kipling Coastal Run last weekend.
The first of what the club hope will become an annual event was hailed as a ‘great success’, as 55 entrants took on the challenging course, including four juniors and two walkers.
Of the 49 who ran the full scenic eight-mile course, Horton was quickest in 50mins 36secs, edging out James Pugsley by 18 seconds.
And another Horton, Maddie, was the fastest female and third quickest overall.
Molly Pennington won the three-mile junior race, beating William and James Figes into second and third respectively.
Despite the damp weather conditions, there was a good turnout of spectators.
