Exmouth Harriers land triple success at Chester meeting

PUBLISHED: 09:01 12 October 2017 | UPDATED: 09:01 12 October 2017




In her England debut, representing England Masters F35-39, Hannah Bown ran one of the best races of her career in the Chester Marathon, writes Steve Birley.

Hannah, head of PE at Honiton Community College, has been a competitive runner for Exmouth Harriers for many years; she was able to celebrate this success with her three children, who all went to Chester to cheer her on.

A prolific racer at distances from 5k to marathon, she was running her third marathon this year; she finished in a personal best of 3:12:30 beating a time she set almost 10 years ago.

She was 10th in the V35 category. In contrast, Amy Tew is a relative newcomer to running. She astounded too; she knocked over 20 minutes off her previous best to record 4:09:13.

Meanwhile, Exmouth Harriers club coach Cathy Newman was taking part in a marathon for the first time in over 25 years and was, not surprisingly, unable to come close to her personal best of 2:44; she did, however, win a silver medal in the F55 category in a time of 3:19:38.
