Showing the Hayle Runners shirt in Cornwall & Scotland

Ruth Phillips returned to her native Scotland at the weekend by doing the distance and showing  the Hayle Runners shirt at the Glentress Winter Trail Half Marathon in the Tweed Valley, Scotland.Ruth found it to be quite a challenge but really enjoyed the race.


'It was pretty much running up a mountain for 6 miles then throwing yourself back down it. Hardly a flat patch in sight! Following Forest tracks up through pine woods, then over heather and bracken, then down an exhilarating mountain bike black route. The run involved 1883 feet ascent of climbing and I was definitely ready for my Irn Bru at the end so I felt right at home.I finished in 2 hours 45 minutes'


Closer to home Kathryn Osborn and Mike Wright were also showing the shirt at the Penrose  Woods 10k, a race around the National Trust estate near Helston in what turned out to be a very muddy  and wet run.They finished the run in 1 hr 32 minutes.

Mud, sea and sand

Hayle Runners were out and about this weekend tackling tough terrain across Cornwall. 


A group from the club took part in the Westward League Cross Country competition in Newquay where mud was indeed the on the menu for the day. Jordan Morant led the team home and in doing so he achieved qualification for the Cornwall Cross Country team. Jordan was closely followed by Simon Knowles, Neill Cookson and Scott Abraham who made up the Hayle Runners team in the event.


Closer to home a team from the club took part in the Remembrance Run where after showing respect by two minutes silence and wearing something red, the competitors run along Marazion beach over sand and pebbles often getting their feet wet.


Mike Baldwin led the team home and Diane Warren was the first Hayle Lady home winning her 65-69 age category in the process.


The full Hayle Runners results at the Remembrance Run were:


Mike Baldwin - 39.03

Diane Warren - 40.14

Amelia Kitchen - 42.54

Deborah Pearce - 47.25

Cas Leo - 48.15

Theresa Clark - 49.38

Jennie Massey - 55.17

Mike Wright - 1.02.14
