GALLERY: Runners brave torrential rain at annual Cornwood 10k

THERE was a good finish to Saturday night’s Cornwood 10k, where Thomas Wraight just managed to hold off Erme Valley Harriers youngster Charlie Milward.

Normally the popular annual race is held in glorious sunshine but this year’s event took place in torrential rain.

However, despite the horrible conditions, there was still a good turnout for both the main race and the fun run.

Wraight (37.25 minutes) and Milward (37.30) were well clear of the rest of the field in the 10k, with Erme Valley’s Peter Allen claiming third in 39.00 minutes, Tavistock’s Grant Harvey fourth (39.30) and Plymouth Musketeers’ Daniel Westlake (39.58). and Plymstock Road Runners’ Graham Bale took the top men’s veterans’ prize.

Tavistock teenager Charlotte Walker produced an impressive run to comfortably win the women’s race in 40.51 minutes, with Welsh athlete Louise Flynn second (42.09) and Freya Porter third 42.53). Heather Eve took the women’s vets prize.

Erme Valley claimed both the men’s and women’s team awards.

City of Plymouth’s Maddie Jones stormed to victory for a second year running in the 4k fun run, with Jack Penney second overall and first boy.
