Bude Lifeboat Run

Wednesday 14 June was the date for the friendly and popular Bude Lifeboat Run a 6 Mile Multi Terrain race and number 8 in the series of ten races. The race was an early sell out with 374 competitors completing the fast and challenging course which wound its way across farmland above Widemouth bay before sweeping down to the Bude sea canal and a flat fast couple of miles to the finish and welcoming crowds.
Mounts Bay Harriers had five athletes who headed north and with all round good performances there were two age category podium places for George Andrews and Gary Richards who showed no effects of completing the 44 mile Classic Quarter coast path race the weekend before.
