St Ives Bay 10k 1st August 2017

On Tuesday 1st August 6 Harriers went to Hayle to take part in the St. Ives bay 10k. Enjoyed by all, the race covers a 3 mile run across the beach then heading up into Gwithian dunes, before heading back down onto the beach and the finish line. The runners first have to conquer a steep sand dune then a lovely run down the other side for just under a miles run back across the beach and heading towards the finish finish line.
Ruth Glover was pleased with her time as she managed to beat her last years time by 11 minutes, and Daniel Tildesley was also pleased as he managed to take 4 minutes off last years time.
This was a first time event for Stephen Ellison, Penny Harper, Michelle Wallis and Sandra Trevelen.
