Well, there was a sea of red in Cubert yesterday. No, not the Labour Party conference, but the excellent hoodies given at the end of the race. They will do nicely for winter. Thanks NRR.

The rain of the night before, thankfully, had mostly cleared, leaving just a bit of drizzle, which mad the running site pleasant. There was a bit of wind when turning left off the main road, but, in the main, it was OK.

As always, it was a popular race with 648 finishers. It’s a race which favours the fast and the lead runners were in in 26 minutes with Emma Stepto finishing in 29 minutes.

Bodmin Road Runners had the best turn-out of the year at a GP race, 20 in all. Great stuff.

Damian Philp was favoured as first in for the club, but no, surprise, surprise, Ian Temple came home ahead of him! Ian’s time was 33.18 and Damian’s 41 seconds later at 33.59. Great running from both of you. Well done.

A big well done too to Alison Temple, who came in at 37.05 and was first in her age group. Congratulations Alison.

Gail Hartill was just ahead of Alison, coming in at 36.56. Well done both.

The other congratulations goes to Nic Vosper who was 3rd in her age group, coming in in 44.28. Great running Nic.
