There were a couple of dozen Exmouth Harriers at the recent Parrett Relay event, but the club has over 100 members and three of the other 80 odd have been travelling, writes Dave Eveleigh.

Hannah Bown has worked incredibly hard to regain her running fitness following the birth of her third child earlier this year, making use of innovative methods and even a large garden!

She recently gave his fitness a serious test with an attempt to run the Cardiff Half Marathon inside 90 minutes.

This would then give her a place on the Championship start at next year’s London Marathon.

She achieved that aim with time to spare recording 87:51 for 344th of 13,000 (yes, “thousand”) and 40th woman.

This was also a new Personal Best by a large margin.
