ARRAN WINS STOKE GABRIEL 10K & FUN RUN
Sunday 31st July 2016

The Start, Finish and Race HQ was down on the Riverside Millpond. This event was part of Carnival Week. It was a very scenic multi terrain course with many tough hills, country lanes, foot paths, woods and fields.

20 Torbay members took part. 121 runners took part with 3 Torbay members finishing in top seven. Torbay Arran Tocknell wins the first ever Stoke Gabriel 10k beating Pete Waumsley from Tamar Trotters. Lotta Savola was first Torbay club lady to cross the finish and was 2nd lady overall. Shaun McKernan only junior from Torbay in the race and finished 11th.

Joshua Taylor was the only Torbay AC junior who ran in the one and quarter mile fun run. Joshua was 2nd overall. Fun Run was one by a much older junior.

SPRINT AND STANDARD GEOPARK TRIATHLON
Sunday 31st July 2016

Calm waters, a clear blue sky and rising temperatures made for perfect conditions as Goodrington played host to the Geopark Triathlon. With home advantage for Torbay Tri, it was the ladies in Sprint Distance action to start with and the first to enter the water, which could have been mistaken for the Mediterranean. Beginning with a 750m swim, Cassandra Harrison was among the leading ladies out with team-mate Emma Stevenson was also well positioned. The challenging 24k bike ride involved plenty of hills and rural scenery before a fast return to transition and the awaiting 6km coastal run to Broadsands and back. In a closely run finish between the ladies, it was Cassandra Harrison 2.15.19 (40th), who narrowly crossed the finish line ahead of Emma Stevenson 2.17.01 (41st)
With three “Ironmen” competing among the five strong male contingent in the Standard Event for Torbay Tri, it was a case of both mental and physical toughness that saw them exchange positions around the 1500m swim course, 42 bike leg and punishing 12k run, that truly tested their strength and stamina. Andrew Gunther was first out the water for the Club, staying ahead of the others through the bike and then onto the run, which took racers out along the coast and through welcome shaded woodland sections before returning to Goodrington. At the finish Andrew Gunther claimed 5th place overall (3.07.00), with Jon Pressling in 8th position (3.21.41) while Frank Reay (3.33.31) 16th, and Paul Mulley (3.40.21) 19th, also claimed top 20 positions with Vince Langdon 3.56.10 (29th).
Everyone was in agreement that this is one of the toughest triathlon courses around and that times were never going to be fast, but it was more impressive just to finish this very tough event that also attracted GB age groupers.

Full Results – Geopark Sprint:
Cassandra Harrison 2.15.19 (40th), Emma Stevenson 2.17.01 (41st)
Geopark Standard – Andrew Gunther 3.07.00 (5th), Jon Pressling 3.21.41 (8th), Frank Reay 3.33.31 (16th), Paul Mulley 3.40.21 (19th), Vince Langdon 3.56.10 (29th)

Team GB for Tim Watson
Sunday 17th July 2016

From international swimmer and runner in his younger days, Tim Watson can now add GB age group triathlete to his already extremely impressive CV. The London born sportsman, who now lives in Paignton and trains with Torbay Tri, has just received news of qualification in his age group to compete at the 2017 European Sprint Championships to be held in Germany. Having only taken up the sport seriously this year and completed his first triathlon in May, it’s a rather impressive rise and one that Tim hopes will end with a podium finish next year against the best in Europe. As he somehow manages to find time to train and travel around the country as a musician, Tim won’t be alone in travelling to the championships next year as team-mate Graeme Kay has also qualified to represent GB in his age group.


Le Bike for Ironman Mulley
Sunday 17th July 2016

In his own words, “this sounds daft” but Torbay Tri’s Paul Mulley has successfully completed a charity cycle ride from London to Paris. Covering 280 miles, through night and day Paul is no stranger to physical challenges as it is a year to the day he completed Ironman Uk, but this time it was more about mental toughness and staying awake for the duration of a ride that lasted nearly 26 hours. Already looking for his next challenge, Paul raised over £1000 so far for the charity Scope.

ARRAN 3rd in HAYTOR HELLER
Saturday 16th July 2016

This is a tough off-road event, not for the faint hearted or inexperienced runner! This popular,, well established moorland race, now in its 31st year, starts below Haytor Rock and follows a hilly, single lap route before returning once again to Haytor Rock with a fast downhill scamper to the finish opposite the middle car park at Haytor. The course is approximately 6 miles and is challenging, with several steep ascents and descents and is generally run across rugged, open moorland, apart from two sections through woodland; firstly below Hound Tor and secondly below Haytor and includes a stream crossing. The course is completely off-road. The route passes through the land of two landowners who have kindly given permission for the race to take place. 27 Torbay AC members ran.

Race was won by James Baker in 41:35 from Chichester Runners & AC 41:35, followed by Ceri Rees from Wild Running (42:00) Torbay Arran Tocknell finished 3rd. This was first race for new club member Annika Longthorpe who was second Torbay lady home.
