Bideford 10 Miler & The New York Marathon

Sunday 5th November saw 8 mounts Bay Harriers take part in the Bideford 10 Mile Race, which is the last one of the series after the half marathon in March and the 10k May. All Harriers enjoyed the event despite windy conditions. This is a fairly flat out and back route.
Stuart Backhouse was the first Harrier back in a time of 1:15:59, with Michael Rooney not far behind him in 1:18:58 which was a personal best at the 10 mile distance for him. Ruth Glover was the First Female Harrier back in a time of 1:20:34.
Further afield, Peter Le Grice finished the New York marathon in 2.27.12 making him 20th overall and first Britain across the line. A superb result which Pete was pleased with.
Mounts Bay Harriers meet on Monday evenings at Mounts Bay Academy. Please see our website for further details –
