Well my first race report. Weather was excellent for running after a day of rain on Saturday.Georgina's Beer Bus was on hand again to ferry the usual suspects to the race armed with refreshments for on the way home!! Everybody seemed to be well fired up for the race especially me! Dave Hampton made his debut for STARC. A few STARC members had a little bit of a hangover but that didn't stop them from running, they shall remain unnamed for now! Well done to Helen Sturtridge & Mark Owen who made a brilliant team passing out everybodys numbers.

The start was as always very squashed with the odd car squeezing through the runners and the lead bike who got stuck at the back. It didn't seem to take long for it to thin out a little Gary Jane was on my shoulder breathing quite heavy for a while but I did manage to shake him off. Martin Trethewey was with me for a few miles before coasting on by to finish a little bit in front in his Newquay vest I will catch you soon. The finish as always up that hill is a killer but thanks to Kayleigh for pushing & shouting at me to get that little bit extra to get over the line Which paid off as I made the Ladies Team!!!

Loads of PB's were achieved today Me, Georgina Speak, Claire Budge, Rachel Builder & loads more so all WELL DONE!!!

Now some results: LADIES TEAM 5th - Kayleigh, Shirley, Liz Lusty, Deb, Rachel & ME!!
