The event hosted by the Plymouth Round Table has been going for more than 15 years and was once again a sell-out, with all 500 places snapped up before the day.
Torbay Tri Club’s Woodard produced a strong run to finish first in the multi-terrain race that starts at Marsh Mills and takes runners into the Saltram estate. He clocked 35 minutes and 22 seconds.
Torbay AC’s over-50 veteran Pete Monaghan took runners-up spot for the second successive year, coming home in 35.44 minutes, which was 13 seconds faster than he ran in 2018.
Last year’s winner Ben Moorish had to settle for third place this time around in 35.54, which was just three seconds slower than he ran 12 months earlier.
Three of the top nine runners home were over-50, with Plymstock Road Runners’ Graham Bale taking second spot in that category with a seventh place finish overall and Alan Ryder finishing ninth.
Plymouth Albion’s lead sports therapist Serien (pictured) comfortably finished as first women in 42.22 minutes. That was more than a minute ahead of second-placed Kirsty Prowse in 43.35, with Looe Pioneers’ Mandy Gibson third and first over-40 veteran in 43.57.
