Tony evoked the spirit of the event when he says that the 10k race “shared the spotlight with human sheep herding, ferret racing, horse and dog trials, hay bailing and the good old favourite, Morris dancers”. However, a quick check reveals that no details are provide of the Champion Ferrett at all so Tony remains alone atop an Olympic sized Lustleigh podium, having taken a few quality scalps in the process to get there.
Lorraine Croome is never one to shy from challenging off-road races and will have given it her all in her usual gutsy fashion to finish well up the women's field, if not top of her vet category.
As yet the results link on the show website is not working, so no times are available for the moment. I will update the blog once they are received. But for now, a photo of Tony's glory moment!
In poll position, having been presented with his trophy by the village crier!
