Exeter City Women’s team joins run for charity


Hundreds of runners took to paths alongside the River Exe for the annual 10k River Run organised by Exeter City Community Trust – the partner charity of Exeter City Football Club.

Event participants were joined by members of the Exeter City Women FC team who were running to raise funds for the charity’s Supported Housing programme, which provides accommodation and support to people in Exeter who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The first three men to finish were David White, Gwylym Gibson and James Cutlan. The first three women were Laura Wilby, Rachel Sanders, Grainne Whelehan. The event, which attracted 400 entries, was supported by volunteers and staff from headline sponsors Tozers LLP, alongside Exeter Leukaemia Fund, Exeter College, and Quay Kinetics

Exeter City Women FC joint managers Aaron Wakley and Abbie Britton were joined by the women’s team players Becky Dandridge, Zoe Watkins, Mollie Taylor, Abbie Bond and Jess Sandland.

Jamie Vittles, chief executive of Exeter City Community Trust, which is the partner charity of Exeter City Football Club, also took part in the race. He said: “It was fantastic to see so many people taking part in the River Run. Thank you to all of our sponsors, event marshals and volunteers whose support enables us to stage our running events for the community.”

Exeter City Community Trust organises a series of running events throughout the year, including the Exeter Live Better Marathon and the popular city centre Santa Run. For more information visit
