The Honiton Hippo Run

The Honiton Hippo Run
by ANTHONY ROWE from Honiton GBR on 07 May 2012

Honiton running club held its Hippo and Hippo calf running (and swimming) event’s this weekend. Over 100 athletes took part. Starting at Honiton primary School the 7 mile/ish Hippo and shorter Hippo calf headed out into the countryside and the multi terrain of road, country track’s, fields with river crossings, mud and a swim in the hippo pool. Lots of uphill and to help those aching legs recover a little bit of down hill.
First hippo runner home with a time of 49:42 was Cornwall athletic club runner Colin Snook, closely followed by Sam Hopton from Exeter Triathlon club in a time of 51:17.
This event was organised by Honiton running club with the help on the day of some 50 volunteer marshals from local groups such as the Honiton Air corps, scouts, guides and many more..
