This is a very scenic but tough undulating course within the ground of Trelissick and includes open ground & woodland trails. The weather was warm but with a few rain showers.



223 runners gave up their Saturday night to run in this event and this included 12 Harriers which meant that both ladies & mens teams scored valuable points.

First Harrier home was Marc Smerdon, 40m.11s- 4th overall & 2 nd in age category. Captain Ian Littlewood, 45m 03s was 2nd Harrier & 1st in age category.

On Friday & Saturday Mud Crew runners hosted their annual RAT races – the Roseland Trail races on the South west Coast Path. There are four different routes which attacted the top off road runners from all over the UK. 833 runners. The races take a lot of organisational skill to ensure the safety of all the competitors and again Mud crew did an excellent job. The Green Route known as the Plague covers 100 km – 64 miles, the Black Route is 32 miles , the Red Route 22 miles and the White Route 11 miles. All the routes involve a tremendous amount of hilly running & negotiating rocky trails , paths & climbing steps & stiles. To even enter these races takes a huge amount of training & courage.

Nine East Cornwall Harriers rose to the challenge inculding Club Chairman Mark Andrews. The hardest race – the Plague started at midnight on Friday and Oliver Jones & Stuart Timms took on this race. Olliver finished in 14hrs 34 minutes achieving 13th place another brillant performance after winning the Dartmoor Ultra only 2 weeks ago. Stuart Timms battled valiantly for 15hrs 20 before sucumbing to exhaustion at Gorran, a brilliant effort. In the Black Rat the 32 mile race, Dave Philp finished in 6h.30 and 31st out of 194 runners, a great run. Rob Pick suffering from injury had to stop after 4hrs 30 mins at Gorran. A brave effort from Rob.

On the Red Rat the 22 mile race 5 Harriers started the race. First home was Alli Martin in 4h.25.38 43rd out of 212 runners, followed by Ann Wendik Byfield in 5h.06.15. Mark Andrews & Tessa Mason finished in 5h 07.08 & 5h 07.09. Amanda Erith completed the race in 5h 31.35 134th out of 212 runners a very good performance.

All Harriers performed brilliantly in this very tough physical & mental challenge.
