The run was the creation of HRC member Alan Nicholls but he has since moved to Wales.

Alan Nichols, Honiton Running Club's member who now lives in Wales, ran the Hay Hill Raiser on Sunday which is an 11.5 miles road race. The only problem was that after a nice 3 miles of easy running they stuck the Eiger in the way for the next 5 miles. The route went from Hay on Wye all the way up to the bottom of Hay Bluff then sharply down for the last 3.5 miles. Uphill running is not really Alan's strong point and he hasn't been doing many long runs so he wasn't totally surprised that his time was 1.51 which is slower than he would usually take over this distance. Alan Nichols travelled all the way from Wales to take part - he must have forgotten about those Devon hills or he may not have bothered! He came 71st in 1:01:34. Alan Nichols has moved to Wales recently but is still a Honiton Running Club member and ran the Brecon 10 on Sunday in Honiton colours. It was a nice cool day with rain before the start which was good as the course is undulating with a nasty half mile uphill at 8 miles. Alan was pleased to go through 5 miles in 40 minutes and managed to finish in 84.30. He felt it was a good result as he hasn't raced since last October. Alan is managing to fit more training in now and is looking forward to running the half marathon at Luberon in France with other Honiton members in October. It was a great occasion with perfect weather - thanks particularly to Alan Nichols, Nick Thorpe and John Burgess as well as the local landowners for allowing runners to run over their land. On the descent we passed the fourth group, the Pole Dancers (Gerry Evans, Maggie Dillon, Wendy Williams, Jo Lowman, Vanessa Glyn Jones and Alan Nichols) who had unfortunately taken a wrong turn in a diversion in Glasgow. On Snowdon the Pole Dancers also split, Alan Nichols, Wendy Williams and Vanessa Glyn Jones racing ahead to try to get in under 24 hours, while Maggie Dillon, Jo Lowman and Gerry Evans took things slightly easier and even enjoyed a cappuccino in the mountain top café!

Alan Nicholls set off a little exuberantly for the first few miles then suffered for a couple of miles until John Burgess came past.
Club Secretary Alan Nicholls had a race of two halves as he found his training limit at 5 miles but was pleased with a finish time of 81.29 in 55th place. Nick Thorpe caught Alan at 8 miles but couldn't quite snap the string and came in alongside him with the same time. Only two ladies appeared for the event so Judy Davey, 14.00, and Fran Bond, 12.34, teamed up with Pete Lyus, 16.14, and Alan Nicholls, 15.13, to finish in 58.01. Alan Nicholls enjoyed the run but just missed the hour in 42nd place with 61.51 while Pete Lyus ran well in 46th with 64.04. The race had been marked sparingly with small white pins to aid navigation by course designer and organiser Alan Nicholls and, on the whole, the runners managed to find their way around without too many mishaps. Paul Davey 19.10; 50 Steve Davey 19.32; 55 Gary Enticott 19.45; 80 Thomas Dunn 21.28; 81 John Burgess 21.35; 107 Alan Nicholls 23.17; 112 Nick Bradley Carter 23.44; 114 Rod Warren 24.13. Alan Nicholls also started but had to pull out in the first straight with an injury - a pity as this is one of his favorite events.
