GALLERY: Pictures from Tamar Trotters’ Magnificent 7 race

CORNWALL AC’s Colin Snook reclaimed the Magnificent 7 title on Saturday evening.

Veteran Snook had won the race in 2012, 2015 and 2016, but he had to settle for third place last year.

However, he was in dominant form at the weekend to win by more than two minutes in the popular run organised by Tamar Trotters.

Snook clocked 39 minutes and three seconds in the race that forms part of the Cornish Grand Prix Series.

Second place went to Hayle’s Jordan Morant in 41.05 minutes, with Pontypridd’s Billy Hayton finishign third in 41.08.

Plymouth Harriers’ David Beckenkrager was sixth overall and first male 45-49, while team-mate Alex Peyton-Jones was ninth.

With Emma Stepto competing at Sunday’s South West Inter Counties Track & Field Championships, there was a new winner of the women’s race.

Stepto had claimed eight Magnificent 7 titles in nine years, but the 2018 crown went to Hayle’s Emma Paull, who clocked 44.45 minutes.

Second women home was St Austell’s Jessica Buscombe in 48.54 minutes, with Looe Pioneers’ Joannae Robinson third overall and first over-40.

The event, which was previously held on a Sunday morning, takes runners from Saltash Rugby Club out on country roads to Elmgate and back around via Forder Lake. The run, which saw 391 finishers, does provide competitors with good views of the Tamar Estuary.
