Exmouth Harriers’ Lisa Hatchard tackles the Hard Cheese event at Cheddar

PUBLISHED: 17:00 12 March 2015

If there was a 21st Century version of ‘The Tough of the Track’, the character might well be female, writes Dave Eveleigh.

She prefers trail to track running, but Lisa Hatchard would be the Exmouth Harrier most deserving of that sobriquet.

Last weekend she was in Somerset for the ‘Hard Cheese’ Cheddar 15 miles multi-terrain race.

She completed this in 137th place of 192 and to do this ran over hilly terrain for over two-and-a-half hours, her time being 2:31:16.
