Organisers of the Exeter’s Great West Run have pledged that this year’s event will not use any plastic bottles, thanks to an exciting new partnership with South West Water and Packed Meal Prep.
The half marathon, which is in its 35th year and attracts approximately 4,000 entries, will take place on 13 October, and smaller ‘Activate’ events (2.5km and 5km) which take place the day before, usually give runners plastic bottles of water both during and after the event.
In 2016, Di & Sammi Rosser took part in the Twilight Walk simply because it sounded like a fun event and they felt that Hospiscare was a charity worth supporting. They could never have imagined two years later they would be walking in memory, having placed a photo of their much loved husband and dad Jeff on their memory star and displaying it, with so many others, within the special memory tent at The Maer, Exmouth.

Two “awful” runners are taking on a 120-mile run to raise money for charity.
Friends Mike Sheppard and Gaz Burroughes, neither of whom have run more than a half marathon before, are raising money for men’s health charity The Movember Foundation in memory of Gaz’s dad, who died of prostate cancer in December.
They admit their bid to run around Hungary’s Lake Balaton in four days is ambitious – possibly foolish – for novice runners.
But what they lack in skill, experience and ability, they make up in determination.
