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!
