EAST CORNWALL HARRIERS RACE REPORT 2017

 

 

With only 1 race remaining in the Cornwall Road Running Grand Prix most runners are well into their training for the Cornish Marathon.

On 19th November 2017 it is the 30th running of the event hosted by East Cornwall Harriers & is staged between Pensilva & Jamaica Inn skirting around the roads of Bodmin Moor. The race originally ran from Saltash to Lostwithiel via the A38 & A390 – something that would be impossible to do now because of safety issues.

 

Entries for the race are now open & already many members of East Cornwall Harriers & Looe Pioneers have entered. Entries can be made on line via the East Cornwall Harriers Web Site. The club welcomes sponsorship for this race and every year the club is able to donate profits from the race to local good causes.

 

On 23 September Sharon Daw ran her 149th marathon the Hangers Heroes trail Marathon between Salisbury & Winchester on another very tough course. Sharon finished as 2 nd lady overall in 4.56.22.

 

30 September saw 3 Harriers compete in the Hope 12 hour race. Individuals and teams compete to run the furthest distance on a 3.6 mile off road course at the Flete Estate, East of Plymouth.

On 30 September 3 Harriers entered The Hope 12 Hour Challenge - where each race entry ensures £5 for Dartmoor Serach & Rescue.

The race is staged on the Flete Estate near Modbury on a 3.6 mile off road course with 2 steep hills to negotiate - up & down.

The conditions on the day were atrocious with very heavy mud on the trails which made for very tired legs. After a great effort Sharon Daw completed 28.8 miles. Oliver Jones completed a brilliant 54 miles and Marc Smerdon was 1 st harrier & 2nd overall in the event with 57.6 miles in 10.02.21

 

Not put off by the exhausting previous days work Sharon Daw started her 151st Marathon at Weymouth, the Clarendon marathon taking in the very undulating West Dorset Heritage Coastline. Sharon finished in 4.46.53 in 9th place. A very good week for the East Cornwall Farmer, Councillor and distance runner.
