Mob Match & Cornwall GP 2009

The 2009 Cornwall Road Running Grand Prix series came to an end on Sunday with the usual Falmouth Road Runners 5 mile Mob Match Event. The weather had threatened to ruin everything but the rain stayed off for just long enough for the 11am start that saw 385 runners toe the start line even tho? it felt like running into a wall as you turned for home around Pendennis Castle.
Mounts Bay Harriers fielded 29 runners on the day and once again a few new 5 mile PBs were posted. Special mention must go to Super Sam Hill who finished 5th and Mike Robinson in 8th. It was great to see Nicky Taylor racing locally for the Mighty Bay at last and new member Richard Boucher putting in a commendable time on his very first race in red, black & white (bit different from gig rowing!) Nancy and Charlie were taking it easier as they were tapering for their 4 day Cyprus Marathon Challenge, when they would be flying out the next morning. This fact didn?t deter sloshy Bob from sprinting past in the finishing shute ? shouting ?I?m gonna have you!!? Nice one Robert!
