Eastbourne Golden Mile and 5K

Sunday was the Eastbourne Golden Mile and 5K races. It was another very hot day along the seafront but that didn’t scare off the Harriers. We darted amongst the crowds enjoying the sunshine and produced some great times.


First race of the day was the Junior Mile race in which 17 children ran. The winner won that in an amazing 5.26!!! Some fast runners in the making there.


Following this was the Senior Mile which had 71 runners. Amongst these we had 4 Harriers running. A special well done to Tina who came in 3rd female. Mark Bassett lead the Harriers home in a time of 6.12, he was followed by Tina MacEnhill in 6.22, Ian Pusey in 6.22 and Cheryl Drake in 14.18.


The final race for the day was the 5K which had 85 competitors. Peter Drake brought the Harriers home in a time of 22.33, followed by Bill Fraser in 23.15, Katie Manley 27.50, Cheryl Drake 31.02, James MacEnhill 31.36 and Tina MacEnhill 31.37.


Well done to all on what was another really hot day.
