Beaches Grand Prix Run 2014


On Tuesday 5th August SDAC held their first running of the in-house Grand Prix BEACHES RUN. Starting at South Sands, Goodrington and running mainly on sandy beaches to Hollicombe and back – just under 4 miles in total. The rainy conditions ensured that there were few people on the beaches and fewer sandcastles to avoid. There was a good turnout of runners from SDAC. Dave Hampton shot into an early lead and stormed up Cliff Walk before tackling Paignton and Preston beaches. At the half-way stage he was 75 yards ahead of Jerry Hocking but by the finish he had powered to a 1 minute 4 second lead. Colin Peters and Rob Leeke had a battle for 3rd place with Colin just dipping on the line to secure 3rd position. The ladies race was a close run affair with Naomi 200 yards in front at the half-way stage, but a storming finish by Michelle enabled her to reduce the gap to just 5 seconds.
