Harriers’ pair take on Hippo

By Tim Leigh in Athletics

The Honiton Hippo is certainly appropriately named.

With more than seven miles of hills, river crossings, mud-filled pools under cargo nets, boggy fields and muddy tracks, a hippopotamus would certainly feel at home.

As it was, Brixham Harriers Simon Ridley and Nikki Shaw chose to spend a beautiful Sunday morning racing this course with the 234 other entrants.

The pair said they had a great time, with Simon finishing 29th in 64 minutes and Nikki coming home 133rd in 90 minutes.
