Les Thurston reports -
Thanks to the wonderful Cornish volunteers, the New Year started early with a Parkrun doubleheader.
Heartlands (Camborne) kicked off at 8.30 with 238 runners on a dull and damp morning. Flat, but narrow and twisting in places so not a fast course. I finished in 26:09 as 1st V70. Winners were - Jessica Gibbon (Reading AC) 17:54 and Neil Hutchison (Queens Park Harriers) 18:23.
Time for a coffee and the drive to Helston for the Penrose event which started at 10.30. The weather had dried up and 462 toed the line. I managed 1st V70 again in 25:21 (but was beaten by a V75 !). Winners - David Williams (Sutton) 17:04 and Tamara Beach (Lea Croupiers) 17:43
