ECH Race Report 15 April 2018.

On Sunday 15 2018 East Cornwall Harriers Pete & Jen Nash who have done so much to promote running in South East Cornwall were overjoyed to see son Dan Nash come second in the Brighton Marathon – now the second biggest Marathon in the UK. Dan who started his running on the grass track at Liskeard School and Community College 12 years ago put in an astounding performance

For most of the race, Dan Nash was out on his own. He passed 10 miles in 53:42 and went through halfway in 70:38 with well over a minute lead and that was despite a couple of enforced toilet stops.

He looked strong and with a 5:12 mile up to 20 miles in 1:47:41, the gap had grown to almost two minutes over defending champion Tipton Harrier Stuart Hawkes.

Dan, who was third in the Welsh Cross Country Championships in February, looked strong but past 20 miles suddenly began to slow – clocking miles of 5:23, 5:32 , 5:42 and 5:48 – and Hawkes had him in his sights and had the knowledge as he had pounced late in 2017 too.

As they reached the 25-mile mark, Hawkes moved up beside Dan.

This was a shock to Dan, who immediately reacted and surged and reopened up a gap, but he couldn’t sustain it and then, well into the last mile, Hawkes attacked and broke clear and went on to win in a gun time of 2:22:33, five minutes up on his time of 2017. To beat Dan Hawkes had to put in a 4 min PB and Dan himself ran a 5 min Marathon PB. The gap was only 22 seconds- but a fine performance that further shows a fine future for the 24 year old.



Meanwhile in Devon the Tavy Half Marathon hosted by Tavistock AC took place. The race was postponed in March due to the snow.

The race starts and finishes from Tavistock College and is a tough challenge. The first 8 miles is a climb of 1300 feet with a 5 mile descent to the finish.

5 Harriers made the journey. First Harrier home & 1st MV 40 was David Robinson in a brilliant 1.27.52. Second Harrier Joe Kearns in 1.41.13. Third Harrier and 1st lady Harrier also 3rd in her FV 40 age group , Rosie Goldsworthy in 1.42.05.. Resolute Marathon expert Sharon Daw had a weekend off from Marathon running to complete the Half Marathon in 1.50.10. Craig Jamieson completed the field for the Harriers in 2.09.54.



This Sunday is the London Marathon and 8 Harriers will line up. Sadly 3 Harriers have had to withdraw at the last minute with injuries.

The runners and their numbers are , Mark Andrews 27342, Dave Philp 27192, darren Harvey 20265, Craig Vaughnley 44301, Oliver Jones 1471, Diane Roy 27619, Jon Qulech 12524 and Clive shute 46367 – again running for the Roy Castle foundation. The race number will enable the runners to be tracked using the Virgin App. We wish them all good luck.
