The Cubert 5 is Cornwall's flagship summer race, and its undemanding route and flowery lanes attract the largest selection of the county's fastest runners. For once it arrived in the midst of a spell of fine weather, but entries were down from last years 646, to a still very healthy 593. 24 Harriers were out on a warm sunny evening.
Steve Sims is mining a rich vein of form, and recorded a splendid pb, coming back first for the Harriers in 20th place, in 28.10, good enough to capture 2nd under 20 male. Jordan May, by his own account, had a St Austell Half to forget, took one and half weeks off, and made a big difference with an excellent 31.29. Paul Arrowsmith recovering from a chest infection recorded a strong 31.52, just ahead of David Philp whose calf injury held out for 31.58. Chris Ullman edged closer to his form of last year with 32.38, keeping just ahead of Revis Crowle whose 32.42 good enough was to win the female 50-54 category. Mark Andrews had run 32.5 gruelling miles on Saturday across Dartmoor, but still pulled out an astonishing 33.12, while most of us would have been tempted to take the next month off! Ian Crowle was next in 33.49. Simon Webber next in with an excellent pb of 34.22, and Joe Kearns next with 34.37, and Clive Shute recovering from back problems that have plagued him since an excellent London marathon, was pleased with 34.52. Lee Crocker followed in 35.49. Ladies team captain Helen Morse was in excellent form, beating her pb by nearly 2 minutes in 35.54. Rob Pick seems to be permanently on the verge of being waylaid by serious injury, but still conjured 36.42. Jess Behennah grabbed an excellent 2nd female under 20 with 37.06. Ian Ringer might profess to be getting ever slower, but his times are showing a different story as he gets faster with 37.32! Perhaps his continuing rivalry with Louise Hawkins, who was only just behind in a new pb of 37.47, is one reason! Ann Quarmby a stalwart from last year's multi terrain series as a non affiliated runner, now a Harrier, recorded 37.52, to ensure the ladies grabbed the 6th place female team category.
The pbs continued to flow with Glenn Wood next in 38.45, only a few weeks after doing 3 races in 2 days, evidently a good tactic for success!! Paul Nottle was next in 39.04. Eddie Sugar was not deterred from racing after taking on the hellish St Austell Half 2 weeks ago, and got round in 40.25. Lastly it was great to see several runners who started out with the Wednesday running group, and are now all experienced race veterans competing, James Lockyer in 41.35, Tracey Maslen in 42.40 and Samantha Hunkin in 45.03.
