Tuesday Announcements - 6.30pm prompt
25 November 2015
It has been decided in response to your comments to give more time to the training session and less time to announcements on Tuesdays. So from next Tuesday announcements will start at 6.30pm prompt so you need to come along a little earlier to make sure you hear what's happening in your club and to hear those messages you need/want to hear which may affect you.

Trelissick / Truro parkrun - Volunteers required
18 November 2015
TRC has been asked by Cornwall Sports Partnership to help; the National Trust have offered the use of Trelissick, and I have done a provisional design, utilising most of the 10K course south of the King Harry road, round the Park, finishing round the Woodland Walk and through the gardens. The course will have permanent course marking signage (to minimise marshalling) and the weekly set-up should be minimal.
Lewis Sanders of CSP has volunteered to be Event Director, and ideally we need about 7 volunteers on duty each Saturday, including two leading run directors, two time keepers, two finish funnel operatives handing out finishing order tokens, and a barcode scanner operative. Don't be intimidated by the technicalities I am assured that we will all get training. In all we hope to get 21 people involved, so that we do two weeks on and four off; Falmouth RR and Grit & Grin have been asked to help; Claire Longman & Jo Staves have already volunteered, so we only need 18 more!

Cornish Marathon 2015 Race Report
16 November 2015
The day started damp but warm and slightly breezy in Pensilva. At the Millenium Centre it was a hive of activity with so many club members working from very early on with Race Registration, setting up, directing car parking & preparing for the fun run as well.Runners from 16 Cornish Clubs & from 37 Clubs outside the Duchy as well as unaffiliated runners lined up for the start.
After 2 quick laps of Pensilva the runners headed out towards Bodmin Moor where the wea ther worsened with increased wind and rain. The water stations were busy suppling not only drinks but also Jaffa Cakes & sweets which was much appreciated by the runners. They were very well organised with the runners own bottles ready for them to pick up without having to stop. A brilliant organised set up, so many thanks to those manning the stations.On to the race report & what a successful day for the Harriers. Oli Jones was first Harrier home in 6th place in 3.01.40 and looking very strong at the finish. Next was Chris Gilbert in 15th place in a brilliant 3.07.58. Mark Davidson with another powerful performance was 3rd Harrier & 18th in 3.10.52.David Philp showed his consistent form & finished in 3.17.57 grabbing 29th overall & 4th Harrier back. Diane Roy in her 100th Marathon was 5th Harrier Home & 42 overall in 3.25.02 and was smiling as usual at the end , a great run again. Terry Leech returning from long term injury problems to clock 3.27.53 & finished very strongly in 52nd, an excellent days work for him. Clive Shute came bounding down the road smiling & finishing comfortably in 3.33.19 grabbing 62nd. Following behind was Andrew Sims in a fabulous 3.42.12 a brilliant new PB and first time under 4 hours and 22 mins quicker than he ran in 2010. With age comes not only beauty but speed. Hot on Andrews heels was our Chairman Mark Andrews in 3.42.42 in 96th place. After Mark, Joe Kearns soon arrived back in 130th place & again under 4 hours in 3.54.59. In 138th place Jim Lockyer came storming home in 3.57.35 his first sub 4hr marathon & looking very strong at the end.Jon Hoare also managed a sub 4 hr marathon in 3.58.40. for the second year running. In 163 place Matt Bundy recorded 4.03.10 & Kaye Patterson followed in 170th place with a great time of 4.06.11 looking strong & fresh at the finish. The indestructible Sharon Daw in her 120th marathon came home smiling in 4.08.20. Yet another milestone for Sharon passed with ease. Meeta Nicholls in her first marathon finished in a superb 4.17.35 an outstanding time for first race at this distance. Bob Brown completed the race in 4.19.19 and Andrew Bickle in 273 place a very creditable 4.38.44. There were 351 recorded finishers.
This is a tough race made tougher with the strong wind & the times recorded are all the more impressive for that. Post race feedback from participants is very very positive especially praising the organisation race support & marshallingTremendous credit to Rob Pick- Race Director our sponsors and all the behind the scenes members who made this day a great success.Thank you One & All.
Cornish Marathon 2015 - Message from the Race Director
16 November 2015
There are so many people to thank;
- The Officials; Referee : Richard Warne, Adjudicator : Doug Alsop, Time Keeper : Linda Pollard.
- Our Sponsors; James Lockyer Associates, Treyone Kitchens, WBM and Tapper Tiling.
- St John's Ambulance, Raynet (radio com
But mostly I want to thank everyone from ECH who helped;
- All the Marshalls of course. We always get great feedback from runners saying how friendly and encouraging everybody was, and yesterday was no exception
- 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.
Thanks to you all.
