There was a sole Exmouth Harrier competing in the 2010 Jurassic Coast 10k run last week.
THERE was just a single Exmouth Harrier involved in the Jurassic Coast 10k Run and was amongst the two hundred and fifty two eventual finishers, writes Bob Woodall.
Andy Kennedy was the sole Harrier running and he joined the rest of the competitors on the seafront at Lime Kiln Car Park, in Budleigh Salterton, and joined the footpath heading north along the mouth of River Otter.
After three kilometres, the runners crossed the River Otter at Clamour Foot Bridge and joined the rural path heading east until it reached the coast path at Crab ledge, where the course turned south.
The undulating Coast Path was followed for a further five kilometres. Here, where the river joins the sea, the coast path heads north, enabling the runners to re-cross the River Otter at White Bridge.
From here the course followed the footpath south retracing the first stage of the run back to Lime Kiln Car Park.
The first runner to complete the course was Joseph Deveau in a time of 35 minutes and 46 seconds.
The first female runner to pass the finishing line, in overall 16th place, was Katrina Rye in a time of 40:17.
Kennedy finished in 33rd place in 44:30 and the final runner over the line was Vicky Bradfield, who finished in a time of 1 hour, 23 minutes and 50 seconds.
