Boxing Day could be a great chance to shed a few pounds after this year’s Christmas dinner and other festivities.

Exmouth Raleigh Rotary Club has organised its annual Boxing Day Fun Run again.

Starting at 11am from the Ocean venue on Exmouth’s Queen’s Drive, it’s a slightly shorter run this year.

“The route is only about three miles, going along Exmouth seafront as usual to Orcombe Point, up the zig-zag path and then along the cliff top, back to the seafront,” says an event spokesperson. “Due to health and safety concerns, we’re not going to the Geoneedle this year.”

Entry is £5 (adults) and £2.50 (children), with proceeds going to British Heart Foundation and Rotary charities.

Prizes will be given to the best fancy-dress entries for both children and adults.

“Make this part of your family Christmas,” says the spokesperson. “Run off that Christmas pudding for charity!”
