race for wildlife - start

Runners get underway!

A stiff northerly wind blew away the clouds, along with any cobwebs yesterday, as 140 runners took part in the last multi-terrain race of 2014, the Race For Wildlife in Penzance. Local MP Andrew George turned out to support the Wildlife Trust as hosts Mounts Bay Harriers put on a great race. Pete Waumsley of Tamar Trotters was first up the long drag to Ding Dong, as the off road section took a toll on most people’s legs. He led the way back down to Penzance too, eventually finishing the seven mile event over a minute clear of second place John McWilliams. Series leader Jonny Colaco (Newquay Road Runners) completed the podium for the men.

In the ladies race, it was host club’s Alice Latham who narrowly beat Zela Morrall (CAC) and Janna Eyre (Carn Runners), all three of whom finished within a minute of each other. Janna just edged out Revis Crowle of East Cornwall Harriers, with both of them being given the same time!
