Exeter Half Marathon


Luke Merchant of Wellington Running Club joined 275 other runners to take part in the Exeter Half Marathon. The event took place on Sunday 27th June, starting at 9am. The route started and finished at Exeter’s Historic Quayside. Following the picturesque footpaths and cycle ways along the River Exe and Exeter Canal within the heart of Exeter. As is now common in race starts, the runners were started in small group waves. Luke, a very seasoned and fast runner was soon into his stride and ran at an overall pace of 8:34 per mile and a finish time of 1:52 over the 13.1 miles. Not Luke fastest but a great finish time and one to build on as we all get used to entering running events again. Well done “Merch” as we know him.
