Race Report 10th December

17 December 2019
Written by: CHRIS ULLMAN


Race for Wildlife

On a cold and crisp December morning, 6 Harriers made the long journey down to the Race For Wildlife in Penzance. It's a 7 and a half mile race up to the moors from the town, crossing ploughed fields, old stone styles, and treacherous footpaths. Once up top runners are rewarded with lovely views back down to the ocean and a 3 mile down hill sprint, which is never quite as easy as it promises to be. 224 runners braved the brisk conditions, and in a race won by Jonny Colacco of Newquay Roadrunners, Doug Stacey of East Cornwall truly cemented his comeback with a fantastic 4th place in 45.56, just one and half minutes behind the race winner and won the male 40-44 age category. Ben Harding was very strong in 18th place in a time of 51.28 and third in the vet male 35-39 category. Jason Crossman made his debut the week previously at Mob Match, and wasted no time in pulling on a Harriers vest again, and was impressive in 25th place in 52.45. Revis Crowle is once again improving on last year in 53.51, to be third lady overall and first in the vet female 55-59 category. Experienced ECH vet David Lean was next in 152nd in a time of 1.13.20, and Liz Egginton made a welcome return in a time of 1.16.42.

Cardinham Christmas Canter

Meanwhile a more Christmassy event was taking place rather closer to home. The Cardinham Christmas Canter had both 5k and 10k races up, down and around the rather steep woodlands of Cardinham with runners often donning Santa hats or costumes. Several intrepid ECH ladies ventured out for the Harriers going the full 10k, Gail Cory was first back in 1.08.01 and Sandra Haynes was next back in a time of 1.08.15, closely followed by Terry King in a time of 1.08.34. Charlotte Bunt was next in 1.13.17, Samantha Hunkin was 1.13.57 and Lucy Smale made up the team in 1.14.01.

If 10k isn't difficult enough as it is, imagined tethering yourself to a dog and gallivant over the woodlands steering them where necessary. This is exactly what Canicrossers do, and Ali Parritt took the plunge and came 4th overall in an excellent time of 56.01.
