SUNDAY saw veteran members of the Bere Alston Trekkers, Derek Hicks and Marcia Macey, taking to the trails to tackle the annual ‘Oh My Obelisk!’ organised by Dawlish Coasters.

This 11-mile all terrain race includes plenty of mud and hills, lanes, woodland trails and open fields. Those who make it to the Mamhead obelisk, the summit of this race at more than 240 metres above sea level, are rewarded with spectacular views of Exmouth and the River Exe estuary.

Both BATs ran strongly, with Marcia securing a course PB (race times were unconfirmed at the time of going to press).
