Butleigh Multi Terrain Run - A Truly Village Event

Butleigh residents, local farm owners, tenant farmers and the community as a whole all got involved to make the Butleigh Multi Terrain Run another great success. This event has been established now for well over thirty years and attracts runners of varying age groups.  Run on behalf of the Playing Fields Association, a sub-committee of five, headed up by Nick Foster, arrange all the necessary licences, first aid facilities and permissions to run the race.  Nick Foster, Charmian Wright, Norman Wright and Peter Wright spend weeks before the event checking the course, trimming hedges, clearing foot paths and liaising with local farmers.  Pam Gane and Pippa Atkinson are always supportive and this year was no exception.  Local Estate Agents Holland and Odam also sponsored the event.

The Playing Fields Association looked after catering with the help of a large community team providing tea, coffee, bacon rolls and cakes. Massive support from residents by way of cake donations was greatly appreciated.   Equally appreciated was the support of an army of course marshals who turn out each year to ensure the runners receive maximum help on the day

This year there were two new trophies in honour of Ruth Higgins and Peter Edmondson who have both supported the BPFA for many years.  The winner this year was Christian Green of Wells City Harriers in a time of 40minutes 41 seconds.  The fastest female runner was Ann Kelly of Langport Runners in a time of 51 minutes and 44 seconds.   Matt Pfeiffer was the fastest male Butleigh resident and Ursula Dunn was the fastest female.   

A full list of the runners with their times is available on the Parish Council Web Site under the “Organisations/ BPFA/MTR tab.   Photographs taken by Pete Edmondson are available on the Butleigh Multi Terrain Facebook Page and Andrew Petherick has more information on the race plus photographs taken by Adrian Barneson the Butleigh Community Forum Facebook Page.  This huge community effort has boosted BPFA funds by over £1,000.00 and this should help to pay for a new See Saw and Roundabout at Holm Oaks Play Park in the not too distant future.
