Once a year Imerys allow the massive China Clay workings to be opened to the Public and St Austell Running Club hold the two trail races. Although it is an industrial complex the scenery is totally stunning &amp; Imerys carefully manage the site to encourage wild life and restore the China Clay workings back to a natural environment. Competitors have compared the race to running on the moon – although I do not think many have done that. Both races are extremely tough with a lot of hill climbing involved. </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><br> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm">Five Harriers tackled the Marathon Course.

Clive Shute, Lee Crocker and Marcus Wills proved that they were up to the challenge and completed the course as a team in 5.31.42. That is a very impressive achievement.</p> <p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"> <br> </p> <p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"> Also on Saturday the very popular Ivybridge 10k attracted nearly 800 runners.
