Also on Sunday 9/10/11, on what proved to be a busy day on the South West running calendar, Dave Eveleigh had headed across the county to run in the Bideford 10 mile race. Billed as a super flat course, possibly one of the flatest and fastest in the region, this tempted Dave who wanted to up the distance in early preparation for tackling the Great West Run in Spring.
Somewhat bemused by the labels 'flatest' and 'fastest', but not to the point that he demanded a refund of his entry fee due to the course contravening the trades despcriptions act, Dave ran well nevertheless and finished in just over 90 minutes, finishing 99th out of 173 finishers and 4th man over 55. A good result indeed and confirmation that a half marathon in 2012 is more than within his capabilities. Very well done!
