Hatchard so happy with performance in the Somerset Levels and Moorlands Marathon

Exmouth Harrier Lisa Hatchard was in her element with the SLAMM race (Somerset Levels and Moorlands Marathon), an off-road event which, unusually, prefers acronym over alliteration, writes Dave Eveleigh.

Lisa was 56th of 79 finishers. She was timed at 5:01:19, but points out that the race was nearly a mile longer than the official Marathon distance, at almost 27 miles.

That all suggests she would have completed the Marathon distance in under five hours.
