On a warm & sunny Sunday, 6 Harriers traveled up to St Austell to run the Imerys full or half marathon. This half marathon is part of the Cornwall multi terrain series and both events take runners through the China clay pits providing a spectacular backdrop to a tough event.
Two Harriers did the full marathon distance & ran most of the race together for support. Stuart Thomson & David Andrewartha finished in 4.07.13. Both said the first half was particularly gruelling because of the sun & they welcomed the slightly misty conditions that arrived during the second half which was extremely challenging due to the terrain & hills.
In the half marathon, Michael Rooney was the first Harrier back in 1.57.13, a time he was pleased with because of the heat.
Mounts Bay Harriers meet on Monday evenings at Mounts Bay Academy 7pm. Please see our website for further details- www.mountsbayharriers.co.uk
