Plymouth Half-Marathon

22 April 2015

Unfortunately clashing with the 5-Tors this year, the Plymouth Half-Marathon still managed to entice 12 Harriers across the border to run the popular course.  Very pleased to be first ECH runner back, Lee Crocker ran well to finish in 1:38:19 with Jon Hoare not far behind in 1:41:05.  S teven Oxenham finished in 1:42:27 with Jon Tourell-Harris crossing the line in 1:46:28.  Richard Turpin was next back in 1:49:25 with Lisa Webb not long over the 2 hour mark in 2:02:11.  Jamie Gerry made 2:05:47.  Ian Gundy was next back in 2:10:57 only just in front of David Lean who ran 2:11:20.  Similarly there was only a small gap between the next two Harriers back with Lauren Horner getting the better of Jeanette Turpin as they finished 2:16:10 and 2:16:45 respectively.  Also completing the 13.1 mile in under the 2½ hour mark Sarah Steed crossed the line with a time of 2:26:19.

5-Tors PB Frenzy

20 April 2015
Beautiful sunshine, a slight breeze, the ‘going’ firm underfoot, perfect running conditions – could this really be the day of the 5-Tors?  From treacherous conditions in recent years this weekend’s event was the perfect opportunity for the 190 runners to grab a PB and many grabbed it.  With no time for s ight-seeing the amazing scenery or even to have a nosy peek at the film sets currently on the moors, Launceston’s Dan Rodgers excelled in a class of his own to win in a time of 53:50, over 5 minutes ahead of 2nd place Ken Walker from Newquay.  Olly Jose, also of Newquay rounded out the top three.  First ECH runner back was Josh Carnell making his 5-Tors debut in some style finishing in 7th while not far behind Men’s Captain Ian Littlewood smashed his course PB by just under 5 minutes to finish 16th and also win the trophy for the 1st Male PL14 runner.  Jenny Nash retained her 1st Female PL14 trophy as next ECH runner back in 1:08:08 beating her last outing by 4 and a half minutes.  Also gaining a course PB was Chris Ullman doing enough to hold off the experienced moorland runner of ECH Chairman Mark Andrews who sneaked into the male team and helped the ECH men to third place in the team event.  First place in the Men’s team event was won by Newquay with Bodmin gaining 2nd.  Another 5-Tors debutant Andrew Sims finished in 1:11:00 while another 5-Tors first timer Ben Harding finished in 1:14:55 just ahead of Sharon Daw in 1:15:08 while Ali Martin crossed the line in 1:15:52.  Also stepping up to his first 5-Tors race Alex Coley ran well to finish in 1:19:05.  Diane Roy made up the Ladies team in 1:20:07 securing them 1st place in the team award closely followed by Ann Quarmby in 1:20:21.  A 3 minute PB for Ladies Captain Louise Littlewood kept her ahead of Meeta Nicholls while the indestructible Rob Pick wasn’t far behind in 1:22:00.  Amy Williams clinched the fourth spot in the 2nd Ladies team making it a very successful day for the Ladies who gained 1st and 3rd in the Team event.  Emma Dales crossed the line in 1:39:24 and Alan Smith also beat the 2 hour mark by some margin in 1:50:28.  Jan Sroczynski completed the Harriers entry in 2:07:40.

Elsewhere in the Plymouth Half-Marathon Lee Crocker led the Harriers home in 1:38:19 with Jon Hoare chasing hard in 1:41:05.  Steven Oxenham wasn’t far behind in 1:42:27.  Jon Tourell-Harris crossed the line in 1:46:28.  Lisa Webb was not long over the 2 hour mark in 2:02:11 with David Lean finishing in 2:11:20.

Marathon Moments

15 April 2015
Not content with the choice of domestic marathons available last weekend, Glenn Wood took part in one of the world’s major marathons, Paris.  Despite having some fantastic form recently with tumbling PB’s Glenn unfortunately was unwell mid-race but soldiered on and completed the course in 4:20:55.  Altho ugh not beating his target time of four hours Glenn can now boast that he is a true international athlete representing his Club abroad.  

Somewhat closer to home Diane Roy completed the Taunton Marathon in 3:20:09 winning her age group.  Lee Crocker just missed out on the four hour mark in 4:03:57 and Ray Goodright battled his back injury to finish in 4:21:39 to win 3rd in his age category.  In the half-marathon Chris Ullman was fresh from his holiday but also rueing his footwear choice as he was first back for the Harriers in 1:33:17.  Andrew Sims is flying at the moment.  Not content with setting a 3 minute 5km PB on the preceding Wednesday at Saltram to prove how fast he has become Andrew was 2nd Harrier back in 1:38:21.  Carol Pollard and Karen Sims crossed the line together although Carol was awarded the position by one second in 2:07:42 and gaining 3rd in her age group. 

Also in the marathon mood was Cheryl Hanns who ran the Brighton Marathon and finished with a chip time of 3:43:25.  Not only a distance PB but also a good for age time for London should Cheryl wish to enter.
