Runners from across East Devon have completed the ‘hardest 10k around’ to raise £3,000 for Beer Primary School.

More than 350 runners took on the Beer Blazer on Sunday, completing either the 10k, 5k or 1 mile course.

The money raised will go towards Beer Primary School to spend on additional space and resources.

Christine Squire, race director, said: “was wonderful to see not only the runners but their fantastic fanbases out in force supporting them.”

The committee thanked the marshals and volunteers, Axe Valley Runners, Beer Coastguard Pecorama, Clinton Devon Estates, Rick and Becky Dormer, Robert Reed and Ian Westlake for their help.
