Exmouth Harrier Dave Wright returned from an appearance in the Cornish Marathon with a win in his 198-strong Over 55 Men’s category, writes Dave Eveleigh.
Overall he was 55th of around 300 runners in a very respectable time of 3:30:26. Also travelling to East Cornwall for this race was Dave Stone who is of course a 26-mile specialist.
Therefore completing the event in a sub three hour time is not normally too difficult for him so it was a surprise to see that his time was 3:06:06 and frustratingly that he was also just outside the top ten, finishing 11th and fourth in his veteran age group.
However, since increasing traffic lead to a new route it has become known for its hilly course, so with that in mind Dave has not said a final goodbye to the sub-three hour marathon yet, that’s for sure!
