TORBAY MEN WINS TEAM PRIZE AT IVYBRIDGE 10k
Saturday 10th May 2014
28 Torbay Athletic Club members ran the Ivybridge 10k.
This spectacularly 10k scenic race started in Ivybridge Station Car Park and finished at Ivybridge Rugby Club. The course is relatively fast, despite the steep hill from Bittaford to Moorhaven. The last 6km from of the route was almost all downhill, normally making for a fast 2nd half of the race, unfortunately runners had to face strong winds for the last 4 kilometres which really slowed the runners times. Despite the windy and showery weather 651 runners finished the race.
From the start Chris Rimmer from Plymouth Harriers lead the race.
Torbay Athletic Club pair Peter Monaghan and Arran Tocknell chased hard closely behind with another Torbay AC pair Jon Parkinson and Adharanand Finn in a small group further behind.
Arran got a stitch at half way and started to struggle. Jon Parkison and Adharanand Finn small group manage to over take Arran towards the second half of the race.
Chris Rimmer Plymouth Harrier won the race in a time of 33:04.
Torbay AC Peter Monaghan finished 2nd in 34:25 just 17 seconds ahead of Plymouth Harrier Alex Lockett.
5th was Torbay AC Jon Parkinson just three seconds ahead of his team mate Adharanand Finn. 10th was Arran Tocknell and Russell Hart 15th. Torbay had 4 runners in the top ten and 5 in the top 15.
Torbay Athletic Club easily won the mens team price (3 to count) 2, Peter Monaghan, 5 Jon Parkinson, 6 Adharanand Finn.
2nd mens team prize also went to Torbay AC, 10 Arran Tocknell, 15 Russell Hart, 40 Kevin Fine. Second mens team prize could had gone to Erme Valley Harrier if Kevin was 7 seconds slower. Well Done Kev.
