Written by: JAN SROCZYNSKI


ECH Race Report to 3 March 2019.

Saturday 2 March saw the running of the famous and very difficult 3 Cousin Jack races on the South West Coast Path. There are 3 races the Ultra, the Classic and the little Jack 10k.The races cover the most technically testing sections of the South West Coast Path between Cape Cornwall and St Ives. Mel Handford was the sole Harrier to tackle the Classic this year and what a brilliant performance to complete the 17.4 miles in 3.32.50 and be 4th lady finisher , a brilliant run from Mel.

Sunday 3 March 2019 saw the 25th running of the Bideford Half Marathon in Devon. Nine Harriers made the trip to race in this historically quick Half Marathon.

The course starts and finishes very close to Bideford Amateur Athletic Club and takes in magnificent countryside alongside the River Torridge between Bideford and Great Torrington. The course is half on roads and half on the Tarka Trail, you even get to run through a tunnel. The race is moderately flat, with one small hill section.

First Harrier was Ian Trice in a speedy 1.25.27 followed by Ben Harding with a brilliant 1.29.35 both beating the 90 minute mark. Dave Hannah was 3rd Harrier in 1.34.33 just heading off 1st lady harrier Revis Crowle in 1.35.07 who was also 2nd in her age category. Kaye Patterson had a brilliant outing finishing in 1.41.37 as 2nd lady Harrier. Glenn Wood 1.50.36 very pleased with his time and just heading off Jane Wicks 1.50.42 by 6 seconds. Mark Andrews 1.52.17 was next home just ahead of Craig Jamieson 1.54.07.

What a 10 days for Marathon Specialist Sharon Daw. 7 marathons completed. Another 100 marathons in 100 weeks on target and approaching 280 Marathons in her quest for 300 hundred marathons.

This latest superb effort started with 4 Marathons in 4 days with Phoenix Running Excalibur 2 at Walton On Thames in 5.04.37 on 21st February. Still at Walton the Phoenix Running Grease Lightning Challenge in 4.53.19 on 22 February 2019. Following this a long drive to Cannock in Staffs for the 100 Club AGM on 23 February, preceded by 9 laps of Chase Water Lake to complete another marathon in 5.04.16.

After this a long drive back to Walton on Thames for another Phoenix Running challenge the Dirty Running Marathon on Sunday 24 February.– completed in 4.32.38 . After this the long drive back to Cornwall and work.

After a 4 day break Sharon was back at Walton on Thames on Friday 1st March at the Sports Hub Running Track to tackle the Phoenix Running Track Wars Marathon – a mentally challenging 106 lap Marathon. Sharon completed this in 4.34.04.

2 March saw Sharon on the line for the Saxons Vikings & Normans Club – Book Day Challenge in Kings Forest – in the middle of the Kent Countryside near Canterbury, completed in 5.19.53. The following day the 3rd marathon in 3 days the SVN Mega Challenge Marathon also in the Kings Forest completed in 5.29.01. - then the long journey home to Cornwall.. Amazing display of consistent running and stamina.

Sunday 3 March was the final race of the Charles Stanley Westward League Cross Country championships. The race took place at Redruth with challenging weather from storm Freya. The championship is 6 races with 5 races required to complete the Championship. Benjamin Marriot achieved an overall 10th in the under 11's Mark Davidson 31st in the overall mens and Emily Young 31st in the ladies. Jenny Nash was 14th overall in the ladies and 1st in her age category a superb consistent season from Jenny. Next year we are hoping for more Harriers to compete in the series which is a good friendly competition and free to enter. It certainly provides a good opportunity yo increase you fitness & speed. It would be good to see the Harriers competing in the team category. The competition runs from October to March.

Sunday 3 March 2019 was also the re-introduction of the Duchy 20 race. The race starts & finishes at the Penventon Hotel and has a downhill start with a run out to Illogan along the North Cliffs road towards Hells Mouth then returning back through Coombe & Pool to the finish. The weather was tough as Storm Freya battered the runners. The winner was James Stephens in a brilliant 2.01.11. Oliver Jones in his first competitive race this year showed fine form to finish 5th in 2.09.05 and 1st in his MV 45 age category. Chris Ullman had a very fine run to finish in 2.31.55 and Craig Vaughnley battled hard for an 8 Minute distance PB in 3.03.43

Some excellent performances again this week from the Harriers.
