SUNDAY was the day for Chard Roadrunners to show their steel in Seaton, Bath and Tollard Royal.

The largest contingent was the well-renowned Grizzly 20-mile Full and 10-mile Cub off-road race and CRRs had 13 runners in the full and five in the cub heading off for a quick loop of the Seaton seafront beach before going towards Beer.

Roadrunners had a good spread and crossing the line first was Roddy McLean, followed just minutes later with a PB by Martin Holly.

Richard Clifton was next racing down the hill to the finish, followed closely by Stuart McLean.

Gavin Wyatt and Stevie Potter were next with Stevie having taken a full face fall into the bog area providing a great mud pack to dry in the sun.

Andy Mear and Addie Douglass had a good race up to the line with Andy just edging it.

Second race PB went to Helen Baxter who is going from strength to strength and Mel and Colin Boarder headed to the line to finish together.

Rounding off the Full Grizzly was Emma Male and Miranda Coleberd who put on a great show for the waiting crowd as they came into the finishing tunnel.

The Grizzle Cub, which takes in many of the full races hills and tracks was headed by new boy Ollie Faulkner and with just seconds separating him and Simon Douglass they had a good battle but right on their steps was Gary Wheaton who really pushed to the line ahead of Phil Hodson and Claire Pomeroy.

Vicky Musselwhite joined 15,000 others in the Bath Half Marathon and showed her class as she moved through the backmarkers to settle through the city’s streets.

Vicky ran a fantastic 2hr 33min and an amazing 10,315 out of 15,000.

Last for CRRs was just east of Shaftesbury at Tollard Royal at the Larmer Tree Marathon where this multi-terrain race with more than 300 runners had an early 8.30am start time so runners were all less than sharp for the start.

Paul headed off steady from the rear and progressed well and with the hills starting to take their toll on the front runners, Paul pushed on to cross in 36th place (303) and picked up a first in age group in 3hr 56m 42s.
