Miller bags new PB in Age UK race in Exeter

09:55 03 April 2014

Seven Exmouth Harriers were among over 700 entrants lining up for the Age UK fund-raising 10 km event in Exeter, writes Dave Eveleigh.

Unfortunately the event clashed with the Sport Relief runs organise by club members from Orcombe Point.

Well over half of the participants were female. With an overall drop in height from start to finish this event produced some high scores in last year’s club championships.

The course was slightly different for 2014, but retained that advantage with its star in Princesshay and finish by the Canal Basin. The overall winners were Tom Merson (running this time in Bristol and West colours) in 31:38 and Exeter University’s Steph McCall in 36:47.

Adam Miller looks to have trimmed a few second of his Personal Best for the distance with 34:55 in sixth place.

Three of our local runners were in the first three of their category. Cathy Newman was third female, but first woman over 45 and was very pleased with her 38:21 clocking. Cathy was 25th overall. Susan Hill finished second Woman Over 55 in a very respectable 47:56 and was 169th overall. Ellie Sutcliffe was not racing flat out, but was third Female Under 35 in 41:00 and 54th in the whole field. Lorraine Croome came 154th of all finishers and 4th Woman Over 45 in another pleasing time (47:18). Richard Hawes would have been pleased to dip under 40 minutes (39:55) in 38th overall, but Dave Eveleigh was a little disappointed with his time of 48:00 as he came in 175th.
