ECH RACE REPORT 1 OCTOBER 2019

ECH RACE REPORT 1 OCTOBER 2019.

Cubert 5 mile. Round 14 Cornish Grand Prix Series. Sunday 29th September

Cornwall offers very little in the way of flat running, and the Cubert 5 miler a little way to the northwest of Newquay is consequently one of the most popular races on the Cornish Grand Prix calendar. It's five miles round a two lap route that starts in Cubert village and finishes in a muddy field opposite the school. 648 runners from mainly Cornish clubs lined up and on a very blustery and wet Sunday morning to contest it, and there were 15 Harriers who made the short hop over from Liskeard, ranging from the very experienced veterans, to a group of ladies from the Wednesday jog walk group taking part in their very first race.

At the top of the leaderboard it was a battle of two of ECH's notable tri-athletes vying to be first Harrier back. Despite playing down his chances before the start Marc Doyle took the honours in 32.08 his first time over this course. Marcus Wills had another strong race despite being overtaken by Marc a mile in, to finish in 66th place in 33.03, a new pb. Chris Ullman was third back in 86th, tracking Marc and Marcus for much of the route before fading to finish in 34.02. Joe Kearns had a very solid race in 35.29, hoping to hold on to his second place in the male vet 55-59 category, but was disappointed to be 8th on the day, and will need to see what happens after the Cornish marathon now.

First lady back for the Harriers was Aimee Turpie, with a strong run just managing to crack 40.00 in 39.59. The weather took a turn for the worse, the wind increasing and the showers returning as Sarah Steed was next in 45.19. Holly Garbett won a spot prize for sharing her birthday with one of the announcer's favourite athletes and was smiling as she finished in 48.53. Kim Crowle was making her first race back since injury and was pleased with 49.32. Next saw a two debutants, Judy Gluyas in 53.15 and Sarah Marsh in 53.18 braving the increasingly muddy finish, accompanied by Alex Putna in 53.25, a sterling effort by all three. Geri Cullen was not far behind 53.25, her first race in a year. Sally Cox has had a long break from racing, and made a good return in 58.05. Claire Jones was another doing her first race and was delighted to get round in 58.25, accompanied by Lucy Oldham who had run 12 miles the day before and was completing her 14th race in the Cornish Grand Prix, and only needs 1 more for the full set of Grand Prix races.

Barnstaple Marathon

Out in North Devon is one of the flattest marathons in the South West following a disused rail-line and three harriers made the trip up. Shane Caughey was first back in a splendid 3.37.47, and Rachel Young who has racked up all manner of marathons and ultras put together another fine performance in 4.33.11. It was heartbreak though for club secretary Meeta Nicholls who has trained hard for this event and had to pull out at 19 miles with an injury

Jurassic Coast Whitestar Marathon

Sharon Daw had one aim this year, complete 100 marathons in 52 weeks, and with the Jurassic Coast whitestar marathon, she made it a superlative 101 in a tough outing taking 5 hours 25.
