Training Information
At East Cornwall Harriers we offer a wide variety of training sessions and group runs. Our training offers something for all abilities and all runners.

Tuesday Sessions
On Tuesday evenings we offer interval sessions which are run on Liskeard school track during the summer, and out in Liskeard during the winter. The sessions cover endurance, pace judgement and short and long interval, and are designed for all abilites. They are a great way to build speed, stamina and core strength, as well as being a fun session for all ages.

Tuesday night also offers a road run of approx 5/6 miles at a steady pace.

Wednesday Night
Wednesday night is a great night to start on when trying out our club. It is our social walk/jog/run evening and offers a road run at a steady run or walk/jog pace. As with all our sessions the Wednesday night group is fully coached and has a friendly fun atmosphere.

Thursday Night
On Thursday night we have 4 groups that run at a variety of different pace times. There are three 8 mile groups, pace, intermediate and social, as well as a 5 mile group.

  • Pace - Sub 8 Minute Miling
  • Intermediate - 8 - 9 Minute Miling
  • Social - 9 plus Minute Miling

Whether you want to run at race pace or a steady training pace there is a run for you.

The Great British Relay

25 June 2015
A message from Joff Cooke - GBR South West Ambassador - "I am contacting you about the Great British Relay 2015 (as featured in Runner's World Best things about running list) which is happening next month, and will be coming to the South West between 23rd July and 29th July. As the South West Ambassador for this event , I am looking for runners to help us celebrate this great sport of ours and sign up to a stage today.

The Great British Relay is a non-profit event and was born out of a desire to celebrate running and all that running can achieve. That's why it has been nicknamed "The People's Relay". The GBRelay is the World's longest continuous running event, running through night and day, for 595 stages, right around the coast of Britain for over a month. This year, we hope to have the World record breaking feat ratified by Guinness.

Carrying a GPS baton on one of these stages you could be a part of a team that attempts to break into the Guinness Book of World Records! It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned athlete or just a keen plodder - as long as you believe you can cover the stage in the not-too-challenging allotted time, then you could be a part of something truly amazing! You can run with as many people as you like on your stage, so signing up will not cost the earth if there is a group of you running. Each stage is just 25 to secure. And, as an added bonus, all entrants this year are guaranteed FREE entry to the event next year when we look to match or beat our own record.

For more information go to http://www.gbrelay.com/or contact me through replying to this. I look forward to hearing from you."

Multi-Terrain 8 & 9

22 June 2015


Rounds 8 and 9 of the Cornish Multi-Terrain series took place in quick succession with last Wednesday seeing competitors taking on the aptly named "Meet Your Max" at Truro and The National Trust hosting "The Great Lanhydrock Run" on Sunday.

Meet Your Max saw 11 ECH competitors bravely struggle around the
varied course which included woodland tracks, streams, rutted fields, fallen tree trunks and of course the 83 steps climbing up from the estuary.  To give some idea of the difficulty of the event (described as "fun" by some), the race winner still took over 45 minutes to complete the 6 mile course.  Putting a recent dip in form behind him, Chris Ullman was first back for ECH in 33rd, 53:15 and setting a course PB.  Jenny Nash finished in 42nd in 54:33 and won her age group followed not long after by Andrew Sims in 48th, 55:25.  Just seconds later Ian Crowle crossed the line in 52, 55:32 winning him 3rd in his age group only 2 seconds behind 2nd place in his group.  Slowly returning from injury, Ian Littlewood made 62nd in 57:52.  Ben Harding beat Sharon Daw in a sprint for the line in 72nd, 58:56 gaining a course PB with Sharon in 73rd, 59:00.  Louise Littlewood was next back for ECH setting a 4 minute course PB in 78th, 59:47.  Arron Crowle is slowly remembering how to run although he had forgotten that blisters are an occasional hazard as he finished in 86th, 1:00:43.  Rob Pick was 91st in 1:02:08 and Meeta Nicholls was 103rd, 1:03:37 winning 3rd in her age group.

A lovely course taking in some of the best aspects of Lanhydrock, the route is not a fast ten mile course due to the hills however when the scenery is that good who cares about times.  That being said though Andrew Sims' punishing regime is paying dividends as he was first runner back for ECH in 47th in 1:16:59.  Being behind Andrew for two races in a row, Jenny Nash still ran well to finish in 51st, 1:17:33 winning her age group again and providing nothing untoward happens at Boconnoc Jenny must surely clinch victory in the series.  Joe Kearns was next back in 76th, 1:22:30 with Sharon Daw next back in 83rd, 1:24:11.  Claiming 3rd in her age group for the second race in a row Meeta Nicholls was next back in 103rd, 1:28:08.  Ian Littlewood was pleased to find that he can still run that far to finish in 117th, 1:30:01.  Ann Quarmby finished in 144th, 1:34:21.  Jane Lockyer again got the better of husband Jim as Jane finished in 154th, 1:36:43 and Jim 163rd, 1:37:21.  Both Jane and Jim had completed a 10 mile hash run less than 24 hours previously to this challenging race.  Tracey Brown finished 190th, 1:41:09.
