Mounts Bay Harriers Christmas Lights Run

Elvis is not dead – he runs for Mounts Bay Harriers! Thank you to all you athletes who turned out tonight on what was perfect weather for our annual 6 mile (3 mile there and 3 mile back) club run to see the Newlyn and Mousehole Christmas lights. I think I counted around 70 in total and probably all Cornish running clubs represented – a big thankyou to all (especially St Austell for the long journey – much appreciated.

The fancy dress theme was more apparent this year with fairies, Elvis, a member of Wham, numerous Mother and Father Christmas’s, a christmas cracker, super heroes and even a dog deer!  but more importantly lots of high vis, flashing lights and glow sticks.

The chips and mince pies went down a treat (eventually) a big thank you to Pete at The Yacht Inn for putting up with us and to all of you who bought a raffle ticket.

Successful MBH ‘rejects’ who are now going to have to start training for the London Marathon whose names were pulled out of the bag for the clubs London Marathon places were – Mark Omori, Ian Raggett and Jeremy Marston – Good Luck to you all with your training and the raceDon’t forget MBH invite all runners to join them for their mid Xmas St Levan coastal run (approx 6 miles) on Sunday 28 December at 10.30, meeting at the St Levan 10K start for a scenic, blow away the cobwebs, off road coastal run and our New Years Day 5 mile moors run at The Tinners Arms, Zennor at 11am.
