Lady Harriers Shine at Bude

20 June 2017


East Cornwall Harriers. Race Report 18 June 2017.


A busy week for East Cornwall Harriers.


On Wednesday 14 June 2017 the annual Bude lifeboat Run – hosted by Bude Rats took place. This is round 7 of the Cornwall Multi Terrain 10 race series. The race is staged in the evening starting & finishing at Bude Rugby Club. The 6 mile race heads out of


A capacity field of 400 runners started the race on a very warm wednesday evening including 18 Harriers. Doug Stacey was first Harrier home in 37.37 and second in his age category. John Picton, was 2nd Harrier in 40.35 and 4th in his age category. Chris Ullman 41.35 third harrier & just 30 seconds behind John & 5th in his age group. Ian Littlewood 41.37 was 4th Harrier home just 64 seconds ahead of Revis Crowle 42.41 and first in her age category. Alex Coley 43.22 had a fine run just heading off the flying Helen Morse 44.12 who was 1st in her age category and Ian Crowle 44.16 who was 3rd in his age group.

Tracey Brown ran brilliantly to finish in 45.43 and get 2nd in her age group. Marcus Wills produced yet another fine run to finish in 46.22.

Hayley Stacey 46.50 battled it out with Louise Littlewood 46.58 to gain 3rd in her age category & Louise was 5th in her age category. Meeta Nicholls 48.32 had another consistent run to finish ahead of the consistent Simon Coley 49.53. Dave Lean the man who prefers running up hills – came home in a 52.58 ahead of the excellent Ray Goodright 54.17 who was 3rd in the Male Vet 70 category.

Steve Beazley 58.43 had another solid run just heading off Sam Hunkin 1.00.59.


To cap off a great set of individual performances our team of Revis Crowle, Hayley Stacey, Tracey Brown & Helen Morse won the Ladies Team Prize. A very good night for the Harriers again.


Glenn Wood took advantage of a visit North to run in the Shrewsbury Half Marathon – despite extreme heat on the day Glenn worked very hard to finish in 1.58.52. pulling out all the reserves over the last 3 miles to beat the 2 hour target.


On Saturday 17 June 2017 it was the Tsunami Coastal Marathon – starting off from the tiny Harbour in Clovelly. This race over 26.2 miles of the most brutal hilly testing coastline involves over 2000 metres of climbing & very many tricky descents – requiring skill & some luck to negotiate. The race starts with the tortuous ascent over the cobbles from Clovelly before heading out along the beautiful scenic but rocky and hilly coast. The race started early but still in very hot weather. The course was organised & very well marshalled by Pure Trail Running with many much needed water & fuel stations on route.

 Sharon Daw Cornwalls fastest County Councillor was 1st female & 5th overall. Diane Roy 6.04.29 was 2nd lady & 10th overall. Brilliant performances from East Cornwalls distance runners.


On 18 th June it was the Burrator Horseshoe a 7 mile hilly excursion around Dartmoor starting from the village of Meavy and going out via Burrator Reservoir, involving some steep hill climbing. Having already run in the Bude Lifeboat Run on Wednesday did not deter speedy husband and wife team Doug and Hayley Stacey from racing again. Doug Stacey finished in 6th place overall in 47.25 and Hayley finished in 61.52. Brilliant performances twice in one week.

On 11 June, Ollie Lord made the long trip to Leeds to compete in the Columbia Threadneedle World Triathlon series in very serious company. The Elite race produced a 1 – 2 finish for the Brownlee Brothers. The race is set around Roundhay Park. In the junior – under 20 race – Ollie finished in 4th place in 1.31.02. This was an astounding performance from the young Harrier.


Also on 11 June in the Devon Open Series Athletics series held in Tavistock – Tyler Gregory again crossed the border into Devon & achieved tremendous results. First in the 800 metres with a brilliant run in a race he dominated and 1st in the 100 metres after a storming sprint & 4th in the long jump. Tyler again showing his commitment and dedication to his sport. A real credit to East Cornwall.


On Tuesday it was round 7 of the Cornwall Grand Prix road running series the Cubert 5. This is one of the most popular race in the series & is two laps of Cubert Village near Newquay. A sellout race of 700 athletes started the race on a warm and windy evening. The ever improving quality of road runners in Cornwall means now that 5 mile races are almost sprints. The first 37 finishers completed the race within 30 minutes. Tony Brewer from Mile High Club won the mens race in 26.43 with Jordan Clay from Cornwall AC only 4 seconds behind. The ever consistent Emma Stepto of Cornwall AC won the womens race in 29.14.

First home for the Harriers was Alex Coley in 32.53 just ahead of Chris Ullman in 33.05 who was just 15 seconds ahead of mens team Captain Ian Littlewood in 33.20. Simon Webber 33.41 was 4th Harrier & 2nd in the 60 -64 age group – a brilliant effort. Revis Crowle produced another storming run to finish in 34.14 and 1st in her age category. Ian Crowle was next to finish in 35.03 and 1st MV55. Glenn Wood 36.12 came home just head of Sharon Daw 36.40. who was 2nd in her age category. Marcus Wills 36.56 just edged out Louise Littlewood 36.59 – by 4 seconds. Simon Coley 39.16 was very pleased to beat the 40 min mark. Alan Green 39.47 had a great race & also beat the 40 minute mark. Lucy Oldham 41.07 finished ahead of Craig Vaughnley 41.43. Next came David Lean in 42.04; Lindsey Saunders produced a pb 43.09 and Sam Hunkin 43.18. Steve Beazley 46.39 obtained a PB for this course and Sam Lane 49.08 completed the Harriers team. All Harriers finished under 50 minutes so a good effort from all.



Sharon Daw was out again on Sunday 11 June to compete in the Yeovil Marathon hosted by Yeovil Town Running Club in Devon. This is a fast 2 lap course around RNAS Yeovilton. Sharon finished in 4.08.26 to complete another fine week of racing.
