Mounts Bay Harriers were out racing over the bank holiday weekend.
Two Harriers traveled to Saltash to take on the challenging half marathon on a damp & windy day. Damian Cook finished in a time of 1.58.53 and Sue Taylor, using this half as a training run for a longer event finished in 2.08.32.
Meanwhile Sarah King ran the Milton Keynes marathon. This marathon is not as flat as you would think & Sarah was delighted to knock 48 minutes off her previous marathon time & finish in 4.45.13. Her husband Gary King ran the half marathon in 2.15 which was a new personal best for Gary. (Photo to follow)
The Triathlon season has started again & a number of Harriers took part in the Bodmin Sprint Triathlon- 400 metre pool swim, 23k bike ride & a 5k run. Ruth Glover commented that it was a good triathlon although a very wet day & she was pleased to be back racing triathlon. Ruth was using this sprint triathlon as training for a long distance event later this year. Janet Haynes was second in her age group. Results are on the intotri website.
