Race Report - February 3rd



<p>EAST CORNWALL HARRIERS RACE REPORT 3 FEBRUARY 2019</p> <p> </p> <p>The snow had barely had chance to melt, before 775 runners descended on Newquay, to take part in the second race of the Cornish Grand Prix 2019, the Newquay 10k. A large Harriers contingent of 24 were there to generate some heat and light in the 3C morning chill. The winner of men's race saw Tony Brewer in his first outing for his new club Newquay Roadrunners, put a quality field to the sword in an exceptional 32.02, with only Jordan Clay of Cornwall AC able to get within 90 seconds of him. The ladies race was similarly one sided with Heidi Tregenza of Cornwall AC winning by over three minutes from the rest of the field in 35.21.</p> <p> </p> <p>While the Harriers couldn't challenge at the very top, there was plenty of intrigue as to who might be first back. Darren Harvey and Ben Harding started together, both pushing the pace, but Darren left Ben shortly after the first significant hill and cruised around in a 38.36, nearly a minute ahead of Ben Harding who in 39.33 and 54th place continues to set new personal bests with every race. Men's club captain Chris Ullman continued his upward trajectory from illness to finish in 41.21 in 80th place to equal his course personal best there from 2015. Not seen out for a while on a race course, Marc Doyle made a very strong return in 42.18, prompting a flurry of finishes, with Marcus Wills next in 42.27, another personal best, from Cadan Crowle in 42.36, also a personal best. Simon Webber can always be counted on to challenge for the silverware and his impressive 42.54 earned him 3rd place in the male vet 60-64 category. Revis Crowle was the first lady back for the Harriers having been overtaken by multi-terrain series champion Helen Morse, and managed to re-overtake her for a time of 43.29 and first lady vet 55-59. Joe Kearns had a solid outing in 43.52, just pipping Helen Morse to the line who finished in 43.58. Rob Pick started like an express train but declared himself well and truly broken at the finish line in a very fine 44.55, as apparently both knees gave out on route. Mike Egginton was another one finishing with a new pb in 47.30 just ahead of Aimee Turpie making her debut for the Harriers at 10k in 47.40. Glenn Wood was please to get around in 48.35, Alex Coley made his comeback after a long layoff in 49.06. Sharon Daw took a weekend off from her epic marathon exploits, and despite not really liking the shorter stuff these days was happy to sneak in under 50 minutes in 49.40. Alan Green got in the early congestion but pulled out the stops to finish in 52.57, Ross Temby was 53.24 in his second Harriers outing. Lucy Oldham put in a strong 54.05, Paul Kelsey finished in 55.47. Liz Egginton found the end of the course tough but was still quick in 56.37. Simon Coley had to helped once he crossed over the line, expending every bit of effort to get under the hour marker in 59.59. Dave Lean was happy with 1.05.37, and Laura Hoare rounded up proceedings in 1.05.38</p> <p> </p>
