GALLERY: Plymouth Harriers’ Yearling claims victory in Bere Pen 10

PLYMOUTH Harriers teenager Sam Yearling claimed another victory on Saturday evening by winning the tough Bere Pen 10k.

The race, which starts and finishes at Bere Alston Primary School, is a three mile downhill and three mile uphill run around the Bere Peninsular. It takes competitors down to the River Tamar and back.

Yearling, who won the Tamar Bridge 10k in March and all the Armada 5k and 3k races in 2019, finished in 38.05 minutes, which was more than one-and-a-half minutes ahead of second-placed athlete Edward Horn of Launceston Road Runners. Third home and first over-40 was Sam Childs in 40.14 minutes.

The women’s race saw Tavistock’s Jodi Fisk and Sam Lake cross the finish line virtually together. However, Fisk was given first with a time of 44.25 minutes, with Lake given 44.26. Both won their age categories. Third women home was South West Road Runners’ Fiona German in 45.33.
