This weekend was mainly dominated by the event which is simply known as “The Grizzly”. 20 miles which includes shingle beaches, streams, bogs, steep climbs/drops and stunning views! 28 club members made the trip to Seaton, 26 running the full Grizzly and 2 running the 10 mile Cub route. While most people enjoyed the route, 2 outstanding performances were from Steve Mason and Craig Sisson who finished in an outstanding 2.46:52 53rd and 2.48:04 60th respectively !
