THIS was a big week for 10 members of Running Forever Running Club who braved the warm conditions to compete in the The Dartmoor Discovery, or DD as it's affectionately known.

It is the UK's longest single lap road ultra-marathon, and is 32 Miles long. The race starts in Princetown and finishes in Princetown, with an impressive 4000-foot elevation gain.

First home for the club was the ever impressive, Dean Bennett in a blistering 4:07, and taking the 1st place in the M45 category, 2nd was Ali Bisatt who finished in 4:46 and claimed 1st in the V55 category, 3rd Male was Kris Saint in 5:47 which meant the Male team claimed 2nd place overall.

The first lady home for the club was Nicola Kelly with a rapid 5:32 and taking 3rd in her age category.
