Superb Spring time weather. Sunshine hinting at Summers’ warmth, flower scent on a light breeze, birds singing and flying through the air, not this weekend! Whether competing in the An Resek Hellys Grand Prix race at Helston or the inaugural Run Exmoor at Simonsbath, East Cornwall Harriers braved the atrocious elements to put on the gold and black vests and show what stern stuff they’re made out of. Getting her revenge on husband Ian who beat her at the recent Tavy 13, Revis Crowle was back to winning ways as first Harrier back in 1:11:22 pipping Ian by just 4 seconds. I hear rumours that discretion and gallantry were in order…………Revis won her age group while Ian finished in the frustrating position of being fourth in his age category. Clive Shute (1:11:47) and Jenny Nash (1:12:02 & 2nd Female Vet 50-54) both ran well to ensure that the first four Harriers were separated by only 40 seconds. Next Harrier home was Dianne Roy who I’m sure found the distance far too short but still turned in a great time of 1:12:42 to get 3rd in the Female Vet 50-54 making it a clean sweep for the Harriers in this category. Chairman Mark Andrews couldn’t quite get the finishing sprint together as he crossed the line only 1 second later than Di to finish 86th in 1:12:43. Andrew Sims fantastic form continues as he also finished inside the top 100 in 1:14:01 as did Sharon Daw in 1:14:14 in 100th. Joe Kearns kept ahead of an ever improving Ben Harding as they finished in 1:17:26 and 1:18:02 while an also ever improving Glenn Wood kept them in his sights as he finished in 1:18:52. Ray Goodright is putting his injuries behind him and ran well to finish in 1:26:03. Karen Sims and Jan Sroczynski completed the 10 mile course crossing the line together in 1:47:14.

Local Volunteers and Donations
18 March 2015
Maggie is looking for volunteer leaders to commit to helping for a trial period of 8 weeks (probably in the Plymouth area). Plus she has also put out a general request for running shoes and technical t shirts, not new but still in good condition so that people can try running and see if its for them. We all have extra kit lurking in drawers and cupboards so if you have it will definitely go to a good cause.
To find out more please contact Maggie directly via email at Maggie@scriptor.uk.com. Thank you.
