What! Only one person racing?

Only one brave runner made their way to a race this weekend, (by the way we only found out by accident!). Andrew Vernon put in a fine result in the Bodmin Half Marathon.

Now in partnership with Bodmin Road Runners, the Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service Bodmin Half Marathon is an annual charity event which takes runners from Bodmin College into the grounds of the National Trust’s Lanhydrock Park for two hilly, multi-terrain laps offering stunning views. Andrew managed to clock a time of 1hr 42mins for this hilly course.

Alas, we did manage to get some keen moor runners out on the weekend. Clearly getting ready for the spring and summer months ahead of us. This fine crew will have a leap on us couch winter runners when we start up the Tuesday moor running in the coming months.

As always please ensure you tag your event on the facebook page so that Jane and I can report on it, include a photo as well.

One other request, as we are fast approaching the granite way races (4th March). As usual we could do with some marshals. Free places to anyone who brings a marshal or helps set the course. Although this isn’t our race we do earn money from it. Do let Andy Vallance know of your support.

Many thanks to Jane Jackson for the run report and Robert Richards for the editing.
