THERE was a bumper turnout for the January Jaunt 10k race on Sunday.
The annual event, organised by the Plymouth Round Table, was sold out days before the race, despite clashing with the Frank Elford Sports Westward Cross Country League.
Sam Pictor was first home in a time of 34 minutes and 11 seconds, with Torbay’s Lee Turner second in 34.36.
City of Plymouth’s Matthew Bradley, better known for his performances on the track, was third in 35.32, ahead of Launceston’s Oliver Glyn ( 4th, 35.33), Plymouth Harriers’ Clive Ramsden (5th, 36.28) and Tamar Trotters’ Pete Waumsley (6th, 36.42).
Plymouth Musketeers’ Alan Ryder was seventh overall and first over-50 in 36.57.
Rebecca Ezra of Tamar Trotters was first lady home in a time of 39.57. She was along away ahead of all the other female runners, with Lydie Jenks second in 45.10.
Organisers were surprised to reach the 500 athlete limit for the run, which started and finished at Plymouth Devils’ speedway track at Marsh Mills. The number of runners led to the start getting delayed a few minutes.
Plymouth Storm, Plymouth Musketeers and Tamar Trotters were particularly out in force on Sunday.
