Brilliant running by our 2 lady Harriers.</p> <p> </p> <p>Sunday 21st January saw the first race of the Cornwall Road Running Grand Prix – Storm Force 10 – hosted by Carn Runners. A week before the race there were concerns about the event being run as many of the roads around Camborne were flooded.</p> <p> </p> <p>After a short walk to the start from Camborne College 580 runners set off onto the 10 mile race route of the quiet undulating roads around Camborne. 10 Harriers started the race – the team being slightly depleted due to illness.</p> <p> </p> <p>First home was the fast inproving Darren Harvey in 1.05.39.

ECH Race Report 17 December 2017



<p>ECH RACE REPORT 17 December 2017.</p> <p> </p> <p>Sunday 17 December 2017 saw 8 Harriers make the trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan to compete in the Mud Crew Events end of season festive celebration of off road running the Rattler Scrooge.</p> <p>Runners join in the sp irit of this festive race by wearing appropriate Yuletide fancy dress.</p> <p> </p> <p>The race comprises 7.5 miles of wet – muddy – hilly running within the grounds of Heligan including 3 lakes to run – wade or swim through. The reward is a free glass of cider to those who finish followed by the annual Mud Crew Xmas Party, after runners are hosed down by the Fire Brigade. As the race progresses the conditions become substantially more difficult.</p> <p> </p> <p>Marc Smerdon was so concerned that the organisers might run out of cider that he set off at such an amazing pace that all were left in his wake and he crossed the line after only 59m 13 secs. Fortunately his fears were groundless as there was plenty of cider available.</p> <p> </p> <p>In what were the toughest conditions for years &amp; particularly cold water, the time Marc achieved is truly remarkable &amp; fitting end to a brilliant season for this fine athlete.</p> <p> </p> <p>Second Harrier to cross the line was Marcus Wills in 1.45.21 followed by Karl Saunders 1.46.03 and Darren Harvey 1.46.06. Next &amp; first lady harrier was Kaye Patterson 1.47.04 with Amy Williams 1.48.20. Glenn Wood came home in 1.58.51 and Lindsey Saunders in 2.12.25.</p> <p>Despite the wet cold &amp; testing conditions most runners vow to return again – which shows something - what I am not quite sure.</p> <p> </p> <p>On Saturday 16 December 2017 Sharon Daw turned up at Bovington Tank Museum in Wareham Dorset – not to view the exhibits but to compete in the Bovington Marathon. This is another tough off road challenge run through the tank testing grounds with mud, hills, deep ruts and cold weather to contend with. Running her 171st marathon &amp; 12th in 27 days Sharon finished in 5.02.44 and achieved second in her FV 50 age group.</p> <p> </p> <p>On Sunday 17 December 2017 , Sharon travelled to Portsmouth for the Portsmouth Waterside Marathon - a run out to Hayling Island and back. Ben Harding also made the trip to compete in his first Ultra Marathon the 50km or 31 mile race.</p> <p> </p> <p>The routes are Multi Terrain with some partly on the beach.</p> <p> </p> <p>Sharon completed her 2nd marathon in 2 days and nr 172 in total in 4.27.56. Ben Harding completed his first Ultra in 4h 50m 20 secs despite twisting his knee on the beach some 5 miles before the end.</p> <p>Another two outstanding runs from Harriers on their travels.</p>

Also the businesses in the Industrial Estate who allowed us to park cars down there and the staff in the Millenium Centre.</p> <p>Mostly, I want to thank everyone from ECH who helped;</p> All the Marshals of course – yet again the big thing we got was great feedback from runners saying how friendly and encouraging everybody was. Many club members gave up a lot of their time to work tirelessly and uncomplainingly both before the day and on it, doing a myriad of things, from setting out the course and all the signs, the car parking team, the kitchen team providing endless tea, pasties and cakes, the registration team, the goody bags, everyone at the finish, the results team…………it goes on and on, down to staying to clear up the debris at the end of the day. <p>Thanks to you all.</p> <p>On the running side, what a great turnout - 30 ECH runners. The results were equally impressive with the overall winner Oli Jones from ECH, the ladies team 1st and another ladies team 4th. The men's team 2nd. Fantastic ! On on ECH !!<br /></p> <p> </p> <p>Rob</p>

It was run in a time trial format with runners being sent off approximately 15 seconds apart. The course was approximately 5km and was extreme off-road with plenty of knee high mud, woodland trails, very technical twists and undulations, water, tree obstacles, steep ascents and descents and a short field section. It was a real test of a canine running partnership and required skill as well as speed. </p> <div> <p> </p> </div> <div> <p>Ian Littlewood was first in the Senior Male 1 dog category both days winning that category and setting the fastest combined time of the weekend, 41:34.
