ECH Report 12 November 2018



<p>ECH Race report 12 November 2018.</p> <p> </p> <p>On 4th of November 2018 Simon Webber was the lone representative of the Harriers at the Bideford 10 mile race. The race takes place along the Instow Sea Front and is a mixture of road and track taking in part of the Tarka Trail. Simon completed the 10 miles in 1.08.42 his second fastest time and also good enough for 2nd in his age category.</p> <p> </p> <p>On 10 November 2018 Sharon Daw made her way to the Kent Coast to run the Battle of Britain challenge. A Marathon running both under the White Cliffs of Dover, and then ascending through them to run along the top of them also! Each 8.76 mile loop has around 650 ft of ascent. The course is a figure of 8 with a loop around the trails of Samphire Hoe and a larger loop along the North Downs Way and Cycle Way 2. Sharon completed this in 5.17.32 before travelling onto Walton on Thames to race in the Remembrance Day Run at Walton on Thames a marathon mostly on the Banks of the River Thames. Sharon came home in in 4.46.32. Another 2 marathons in a week putting Sharon well on course to completing 250 Marathons before Christmas – displaying unbelievable stamina and determination.</p> <p> </p> <p>11th of November was the highly popular Remembrance Day Run at Marazion. Competitors are asked to wear something red. Prior to the race is there is a period of 2 minutes silence to honour those who lost their lives in 2 World Wars. The race takes place on the beach in front of St Michaels Mount. The distance is approximately 4.5 miles and includes running in soft wet sand for the whole distance and crossing a river.</p> <p>10 Harriers made the journey and 6 Harriers managed place trophies a tremendous days work.</p> <p> </p> <p>First Harrier Home was Darren Harvey in 34.06 and 2nd in his MV40 age category. Close on his heels in 34.58 was the fast improving Ben Harding taking 3rd in his MV 35 age category. Chairman Rob Pick was 3rd Harrier in 37.18 and 1st in his MV 60 age group. Helen Morse in 38.58 was 2nd in her Female 20 -34 age category and 6th female overall – a brilliant run. Louise Littlewood in the CaniCross category with her dog Ava secured 1st place overall and 1st Female in a brilliant time of 40.20.</p> <p> </p> <p>Mike Egginton in 41.03 was next Harrier just ahead of Amy Williams in 44.09. Dave Lean produced another determined performance to finish in 47.37 ahead of Liz Egginton in 51.39. Mary Mullarkey completed the Harriers team in 52.20 and was 1st in her FV 70 age group – another excellent race by Mary.</p> <p> </p> <p>Saturday 10 November was the East Cornwall Harrier second Plogging Event - running &amp; collecting litter along the roads. For this event the Harriers – led by Craig Vaughnley chose the route of the Cornish Marathon – run on the previous Sunday.</p> <p>Harriers had 4 groups going out. One member travelled back from London just to take part. One group started at Pensilva running to Redgates. Another group starting in Minions running towards Golitha. Then two groups with one running from the Bolventor side of the valley and the other group running the Fowey valley side. 12 bags of rubbish were collected. Some of the group had to run &amp; wade through floods . Happy to report there was not a lot of runners rubbish from the Marathon the runners obeying pre-race instructions and keeping their wrappers and containers with them. There was the usual amount of plastic wrappers and cans – mostly discharged from cars and a complete car bumper. </p> <p> </p> <p><br /><br /></p> <p> </p> <p><br /><br /><br /></p>

Start time is likely to be 8/9am TBC.</p> <p>The plan is afterwards to have breakfast / brunch at Inkies.</p> <p>So if you want to JOIN a ground breaking / record breaking / planet saving PLOG please email membershipech@gmail.com.</p> <p>All equipment will be provided, just turn up at meeting point TBC.</p> <p>Regards</p> <p>Craig </p>
