Harriers wrap up as the final round of the 3k also wraps up!

Four Exmouth Harriers were on the track in Exeter for the final round of the Ironbridge Runner 3km Series.

The temperature was low enough to see frost forming on the track surface, leaving runners without spikes short on traction, particularly on the bends.

Les Turner ran 14:42 in the D Race and picked up the overall first prize for Men Over 65 for the series. 

Carly Audritt was 10th in the C Race in 13:24 but unfortunately, having been forced to sit out the second round in November due to illness, she was unable to post the 3 times that were necessary in order to place in the series. 

Also in the C race, Dave Eveleigh tried but failed to get away from rival Dave King who tracked him all the way to the final straight before pulling away to win comfortably (third in 12:06 to Eveleigh’s fifth in 12:12), but Eveleigh was second overall in the 55+ Men’s section for the 3 rounds.

Andrew Johnson worked especially hard in finishing 10th in the B Race, his time on the track-side clock showing an impressive 11:51, though officially he was given 12:01. 

The whole event, four 3km races and a mile run for younger athletes, as well as presentations was very efficiently completed in an hour and a half so that runners could get out of the cold and get warmed up!
