Honiton Running Club duo Richard Harris and Pippa Westall travelled to the Channel Islands for their latest race, writes Judy Davey.
They went to St Hellier in Jersey to take part in the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon.
Richard came 92nd in 3:39:32. This was Pippa’s first ever marathon and although she was nervous about completing the distance, she did well to finish 207th in 4:08:48.
The race was won by Dan Tanui in 2:19:32 and there were 393 marathon finishers.
There seemed like more, as marathon runners also ran alongside relay teams splitting the marathon distance between them.
