Hundreds of people turned out to work off those Christmas calories by taking part in a Boxing Day fun run.

The annual event, held on Exmouth seafront and organised by the Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh, had a record number of entrants for the third successive year, with more than 360 taking part.

Rotarian Dick Francis said: “The runners’ entrance fees will provide a huge boost to the amount collected by Exmouth Raleigh Rotary Club over the Christmas period - of which every penny will be donated to charity.

“The fun run itself will provide a much-needed donation to the British Heart Foundation.

“All of this could only have been possible with the wonderful support of Exmouth residents to whom we extend a huge thank-you.”
