Three Exmouth Harriers ventured to North Devon for the South Molton Struggle, a multi-terrain event of almost eight miles, writes Dave Eveleigh.

Two of the club’s eldest members, Ray Elston and Jim Wyatt were first and second respectively in the Men’s Over-70 category.

It should be stressed that when Exmouth veterans like those two race, they don’t just shuffle round and have the right birth certificate!

They are runners and they are certainly competitive.

Elston took just under 67 minutes to cover the distance and was 67th of 128, just short of the top half.

Wyatt clocked 75 minutes and was 94th, leaving three dozen in his wrinkly wake! Jon Garrity, a mere youth in comparison was an impressive14th in 52:09 and second in the 40-44 Men’s category.
