Harriers Race Report 8 April 2018

ECH Race Report 8 April 2018.

An exciting weekend of distance races for East Cornwall Harriers – except for two Club members that had a weekend off, for a much more important event, they got married. Congratulations to Marc and Lindsey now, Mr & Mrs Smerdon.

On the 7 April 2018 two Harriers made the long trip South to Cape Cornwall to compete in the Cousin Jack Races hosted by Bys Vyken Events. The races are inspired by the story of the Cornish Tin Miners, 250000 of whom were forced to emigrate from Cornwall when the tin ran out and the prices crashed and no work was available between 1861 and 1901. Those who emigrated to many parts of the world were then referred to as Cousin Jacks. Bys Vyken the events organisor are now also setting standards for sustainability in leasure by eliminating the use of non reusable plastics such as drinks containers – thus preventing pollution.

The races are run on the most remote and most rugged part of the South West Coast Path passing many iconic old Tin Mines, Wheal Owles, Botallack, Geevor and then passing Pendeen Lighthouse. This year the route was muddy , slippery and treacherous in many places and involved some very steep climbs and descents.

Helen Morse tackled the Classic Cousin Jack a 17.4 mile route. Helen came in as 2nd lady and 18th overall in a brilliant time of 3h 52 .26 just 5 minutes behind ladies race winner Jo Robinson from Looe.

Rachel Young tackled the first Bys Vyken Coastal Race – the Ultra Jack of 35 miles running the route of the Classic Jack in both directions. Rachel had to draw on all her reserves to complete the race in 11.59.58. a brilliant effort of guts and determination.

On Sunday 8 April 2018 Marathon & Ultra Marathon specialists Diane Roy and Patrick Munn travelled to tackle the Taunton Marathon.

Despite a 5 month lay off since November , Diane stormed around in 3h 19m 26s secs to be 2 nd lady overall and 1 st female Vet 50, a very good result indeed. Pat came home in 3h 33m 32 and 3rd MV 50. A rewarding race for both.

Meanwhile in Staines, Sharon Daw continued in her goal to reach 200 marathons taking on the Magna Carta Marathon. The route follows the River Thames Path between Staines and Old Windsor. Sharon completed her 190th marathon in 4h40.58

On Sunday 8th April it was number 191 for Sharon -the Kent Spring Marathon . This was a 2 lap race of 13.1 miles each lap - on a multi terrain course part road and part trail centred around Ashford. Part of the race takes in the original Pilgrims Way. Sharon finished in 4.13.20 as 2 nd lady overall and 2nd in her FV 50 category.

On Sunday 8 April Head coach Revis Crowle recovering from a calf injury she picked up in February travelled to the lovely Enys House , Penryn near Falmouth to take on the Enys 10k organised by the Penryn .Rotary club. The 6.2 mile race is centred around Enys House & gardens and is run mainly on quiet country lanes with a testing hill to overcome. Revis completed the race in 45m47s as 5th lady and 1st in her FV50 age group.

A brilliant weekend of running for all the Harriers.
