A crisp, frosty cold undulating 10 miles awaited the purple and gold with the Cornish Grand Prix season kicking off down at Camborne. This race is always hindered with poor weather but with a clear sunny sky it was alway going to be the temperature to play against.
As runners lined up on the start line with beaming smiles ready to go, it soon began. That famous first mile heading out towards Barripper is always a fast one as the loop towards Leedstown ticks off the miles and leads you back to that downhill section where now you climb back up towards the finish line at Camborne School. A top event as always hosted by Carn Runners, with a marvellous spread of food and hot drinks for finishes to indulge all for a charitable cause.
This year saw an impressive 561 runners take part with our very own Iain Walker picking up second in his age category, 60-64. (pictured)
Malcolm Roberts continues where he left off last season collecting first in his age category, 65-70. A great start to the new season for everyone. Some running this race for the first time and some with notable personal bests too..
The next race coming up in the series is on Sunday 2nd February, Newquay 10k.
