Hameldown Hammer

Well done all, for braving the elements on a tough, challenging half marathon designed to be a serious test of endurance. Ian had to make the difficult decision to pull out as conditions worsened, but he’s still a hero to us!

Course Map

Newquay 10k

What a fantastic turnout from the club Р29! Brilliant. It was so good to see a sea of blue out there. Great to see Clive Ramsden again. He has moved to Newquay, so had only just got out of bed!

It was very warm and the overnight rain, fortunately, had dissipated. There was a significant amount of mud going up the lane and, just to add to the excitement, a number of horses came out of the farm causing some disturbance to the front runners.

It’s a difficult race to marshal with the road crossings, so well done to NRR for a well managed race. Very enjoyable.

Here are the club’s results:

Clive Ramsden: 40.11

(Jo Temple: 41.48)

Ian Temple:42.45 (3rd in his age-group)
