Classy Catie races to victory in the Grizzly Cub event

CATIE O’Donoghue continued her good form in 2022 with an impressive victory in the hugely popular Grizzly off-road event yesterday.

The Bristol & West AC runner (pictured far right) steered clear of the full Grizzly which is close to 20 miles and opted for the shorter Cub, which is closer to 10 but also includes plenty of fearsome climbs on the east Devon coast near Seaton.

But O’Donoghue was more than a match for the course as she finished fifth overall from just over 900 runners completing the course in a time of 1hr 11mins 19secs.

That left her well clear of mother-of-two Ellie Dominey (1:14:48) with Hannah Seager third (1:15.54).
