Axe Valley Runners held their Grizzly presentation evening last Friday at Winston’s in Seaton, where they thanked all of the clubs, organisations and societies that had helped them make the 2014 event such a resounding success. The evening was hosted by Rick Wood, Grizzly manpower co-ordinator and Dave Thomas, the race director. This was the first year of the Grizzly being organised by a new committee and they thanked all who had taken part in the race organisation. Sixty-two local organisations had been involved in marshalling the 20 mile long race course involving hundreds of volunteers.
