Exmouth Harriers Tom Merson, Hannah Bown and Tom Parker showed their class last weekend, with Merson recording his fastert time in two years at the Speedway 10km in Chepston. 

Merson clocked a superb time of 29.52 and he achieved it with a relatively unique negative split after running 15.05 for the first 5km and then speeding up to clock 14.47 for the second 5km. 

Hannah’s fitness is returning after a period of illness at the end of 2021. She tested herself over 13.1 miles on the roads around Chepstow Racecourse. Hannah finished in 1.32.49 in 28th position overall and she was the second woman to finish. 

Parker chose the popular Storm Force 10-mile road race that started and finished in Camborne as his first race of 2022. The course was on undulating mainly quiet country roads and Tom finished in a marvellous new personal best time of 64.54.
