Otter River and Rail 10K Run

By Geoff Harcombe

Saturday 8th July’s 10K run was at Tipton St John near Sidmouth celebrating 40 years of the village playing association.
The race was mainly off road along the river and redundant track bed of the Sidmouth branch line around Tipton and Harpford. The event was well organised with marshalls and water stations which were supplying Jelly Babies as well!
There was a choice of prizes at the finish but, not surprisingly, most people went for the beer glass which could be filled with free Otter beer.
Our contingent consisted of Helene, Jacky, Nancy and myself Geoff. A good day was had by all from Team Crediton.
