Mike Wood successful navigated his way around the Exmoor Trail Events Half to finish in first place.

Mike Wood, an unattached (no club) runner from Backwell, came first in the Exmoor Trail Events Half (15.5miles/25k) in a time of two hours 27 minutes.

Despite the cold, biting wind it was dry and not too boggy on the moors or slippy on the wooded coast path.

Mike felt he would have been beaten by better runners had some of the leaders not made route finding mistakes, whereas he stuck to what he thought was (and turned out to be) the right route and already knew well from previous training runs.
