Turkey Trotting Super Sam

On what was a perfect morning for racing, SAM HILL, Mounts Bay Harriers, won todays 4 mile Turkey Trot at Tricky Dickies, Redruth. The event, which was celebrating it?s 25th anniversary, saw Sam beat to the line 212 other runners and also his nearest rival Pete Ellis by over 30 seconds coming home in a personal and club best time of 21.08, which incedently gives him the 21st fastest time ever over this course.
Sam, who celebrates his 21st birthday on Boxing Day, came around the final bend into the straight looking strong and fresh, with the nearest MBH team mate (and also 35 years older!) was evergreen Geoff Letchford only a few places behind in 24.50, another age group win for the Lucozade and Guiness drinking veteran (I wonder if that?s the secret?) Jellybaby Mr Hickson showed more improvement with yet another PB by over 30 seconds finishing in 21st position in 25.09
It was very good day for The Bay, especially the ladies, as many bottles of wine seemed to be heading in our direction, with age group position wins for Sam, Andrew, Nancy, Nicky, Karen, Clive, Mhairi, Yvonne, Zoe and Tammy.
A well deserved Sunday Lunch was consumed by 22 of us following the race as we discussed future 2010 battle plans, arranged London and Dublin Marathon trips and talked about our forthcoming club ski trip on New Years Day to France
Well Done Everybody ? see you at the club tomorrow (Monday 14) Don?t forget Thursday is also at the school at 7.30 as it?s Vivs revenge and a ‘big spread the word’ on Monday 21 December is the Christmas Lights Run!
