GALLERY: Tamar Trotters’ Landers retains the Magnificent 7 title

TAMAR Trotters’ Jacob Landers retained the Magnificent 7 title on Sunday.

Landers eased to victory for a second year running in the event his club organise.

He clocked 38.42 minutes for the tough seven-mile race that takes runners from Saltash Rugby Club out on country roads to Elmgate and back around via Forder Lake.

That was within 13 seconds of the time he ran last year but this time around he did run the final 100m metres with his young child. He had also run at the Erme Valley Relays on Friday, clocking the fastest time.

Second at Sunday’s Magnificent 7, which is part of the Cornish Grand Prix Series, was Mile High’s Tom Morton, who came home in 39.27 minutes.

St Austell’s David Tregonning was third in 41.24, with East Cornwall Harriers’ Simon Morse fourth, and first M35 (41.50) and Hayle’s Jordan Morant fifth (41.55).

Erme Valley Harriers’ teenager Charlie Milward had a good run, finishing in the top 10 in 43.14 minutes.

Truro’s Anna Harrold was the first woman in 43.43, with Hayle’s Emma Paull second (46.38), Alexandra Russell-Small third (49.06), Tamar Trotters’ Ayesha Gillespie fourth (51.54) and Storm Plymouth’s Lisa Todd fifth (52.09).

East Cornwall Harriers’ Revis Crowle, who was first female when the race was first run in 1999 and won the event six times, was first F60, while Plymouth Harriers’ Andy Charles was first M60, with Tamar Trotters’ Steve Baker the first M65.

East Cornwall Harriers were second in the women’s team award, with Tamar Trotters finishing third in the men’s team event.

Before the main race there was a one-and-a-half mile fun run.
