While four of the Exmouth Harriers tackled 10km three more took on the challenge of the Half Marathon at Tavistock, writes Dave Eveleigh.

Indeed while multi-terrain racing seems to be the most popular overall, on the roads when it comes to standard distances what is missing is the once common 10 mile race which perhaps is disproportionately easier to recover from than the ‘Half’s’ 13 miles.

There were just over 200 on the Tavistock start line.

Hannah Bown was 28th overall and second woman in a time of 92:26, some eight minutes clear of the third woman, but only minutes (or about 500 metres) behind the first!

Ben White was 106th and recorded 1:51:36 in 106th.

Dan Morley was one of getting on for a thousand runners at the Yeovil Half Marathon where he finished 134th in 1:37:01 on what he describe as a ‘weird undulating course’.

Morley now has his eyes on cracking that 1:30 barrier and is looking for a course that might help him do that.
