LAST week saw the running of the first event in the 2010 Iron Bridge Runners Run Exe Summer Series, writes Bob Woodall.

Amongst a field of 80 competitors were a trio of Exmouth Harriers, Andy Johnson, Dave Eveleigh and Jim Wyatt.

The course was changed slightly from previous years to take the runners around the River Exe overflow which, of course, had to be shared with cyclists, dog walkers and ducks!

On a warm, sunny evening with a brisk northerly wind the runners started their 5k race which consisted of two laps run on a flat tarmac surface.

The first runner to complete the race was Jack Bancroft of Exeter University AC in a time of 15 minutes and 44 seconds.

The first female athlete, in overall 14th position, was Lucy Kelvey of Newquay RR in a time of 18:29.

Andy Johnson was the first Exmouth Harrier to cross the finishing line, in 26th place in a time of 19-29.

Dave Eveleigh finished in 60th place in a time of 24-20 followed immediately behind in 61st place by Jim Wyatt in a time of 24-25.

In last place, in 80th position, was Amy Heywood of Run in England, who recorded a finishing time of 35-24.
