Exmouth Harriers Dave Eveleigh and Cathy Newman took part in the Devon 10,000m Championships held on the track at the newly refurbished Exeter Arena.

Twenty-five 400m laps is a test of concentration, not least for the officials tasked with counting them.

Dave and Cathy were both in the slower of two races.

Cathy was fourth in that race, second woman and first woman over 50 in 39:07.

Despite briefly coming to a halt halfway through Dave got back on track to finish 14th of 16 starters, but third man over 60 in 46:26.
