CROWDS of sporty people took part in a Boxing Day fun run on Exmouth seafront.

While some were at home tucking into mince pies, entertaining guests or testing out their Christmas presents, scores of keen runners entered the run, held in aid of the British Heart Foundation and Rotary International.

The event was organised by the Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh.

The runners had to endure a course which ran from the clock tower to the Geoneedle and then back to the tower.

Prizes were on offer for people who gained the most sponsorship and those who wore fancy dress.
