Spring Madness

30 March 2015

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 Harrier s 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.

 The inaugural Run Exmoor race starting near Simonsbath saw wind speeds of over 60 mph and with the driving rain ensured that whether you ran the 10km or 10mile race a fast time was an impossibility.  Describing the weather as the most brutal conditions that they have ever ran in let alone raced, Ian & Louise Littlewood and new member Jenny Hicks took part in the off road event whereby Cani-Crossers compete in the mainstream race.  In the 10km Louise Littlewood was 1st Female Vet in a time of 59:56.  Ian finished 2nd overall in the 10 mile race in 1:17:08 and was 2nd Senior Male beating the former British international cyclist and 2nd dog runner Wendy Houvenaghel by nearly three and a half minutes.  Jenny completed the 10 mile course in 1:34:56 winning 3rd Female and this included stopping to help another runner who was so cold that medical treatment was required.  Roll on summer.

Local Volunteers and Donations

18 March 2015
A lady called Maggie Lewis is looking at starting a running group for the benefit of those who drop through the holes in our community such as homeless, ex offenders, those in poverty, recovering addicts etc.  This is in connection with Shekinah Mission in Plymouth.  She is also looking at working with anothe r organisation called A mile in Her Shoes which at the moment is only based in London.

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.
