Five Bats ran a very wet and muddy Haldon Heartbeat on Saturday. The 8 and a bit mile course started at a misty Exeter racecourse and followed trails through Haldon forest and private heathland. The event, organised by Haldon Trail Runners, raised money for
HeartSwell South West, whose patron, BBC Radio Devon presenter Judy Spiers, started the race.
For the three women runners this was their first trail race. The Bats are pictured (left to right) Martin Head (1.20.24), Eleanor Butland (1.35.45), Emma Wright
(1.35.10), Mike Smith (1.12.49) and Heather Smith (1.35.11).
