Results for the Tunnel Vision 5 Mile Night Race – 17.11.16
Tunnel Vision is an out and back, 5 mile running race. The route starts approx. ½ mile down from the entrance to the Brampton Valley Way, Market Harborough. The routes took in the very long and very dark Oxendon Tunnel. At 422m long, the old railway tunnel really is an imposing sight and pitch black. The organisers decided to light it to provide a unique opportunity for runners to run through it…and back again. At the half way point, all runners were given a pair of glow in the dark glasses item to prove that they have run the full distance.

The Cornish Marathon is Cornwall’s only all road marathon. It began in 1987 and originally started out from Saltash following the A38 and A390 to Lostwithiel. The route now starts from Millenium House, with a scenic circular out and back route which takes runners along the Draynes Valley, through the ‘Poldark’ country of Bodmin Moor, past King Arthur’s legendary Dozmary Pool, Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn at Bolventor and back along the Fowey Valley, taking in a climb to Foredown between miles 24 and 25, which most runners will remember for a long time, and not just for the fabulous views !

Results for the Conwy Half-marathon – 20.11.16
This race started on Conwy Quayside next to the river Conwy and in front of the 700+ year old Conwy Castle, from here it went along the road through to Deganwy (appprox 2 miles) and on to the West Shore in the Victorian Town of Llandudno (approx 3.5 miles), then along Church Walks and past the pier. The next part of the route was the tough bit as runners went around the Great Orme (from approx 5 miles), this is undulating and also has a couple of steep sections; after approx 2 miles of being on the orme runners began a 2 mile down hill section which returned to the West shore (approx 9.5 miles) as the runners then retrace the route back to the finish on Conwy Quayside.
Results for the Coombe 8 – 20.11.16
This approximate 8 mile (7.6 mile this year), tough, multi-terrain course was ran on woodland trails & farm land within Coombe Country Park boundary, it was a cold, blustery November morning, but luckily the rain held off and the course wasn’t too muddy, although the river crossing was very cold !! The hot soup and buff at the end was well deserved by all that ran (especially Cristina who took a wrong turn and ran an extra 0.8 mile !!).
