Individual & Team Wins for the Harriers in Mid Lancs League – Seconds off a Club Record for Andy – Carol sets big PB on Liversedge Half-Marathon & More Results

Fixture Five in this years Mid Lancs Cross Country League was held at Rossall School in Cleveleys and was about as different from a Witton Park cross country race as you can imagine – almost pan flat. But the good thing was that there was no rain and mountains of mud, scenario’s that have been in force at all cross country races this year.

It was a good day for the Harriers too with individual wins in the U13 Boys, U13 Girls and U17 Women and a Team win in the U13 Boys and Runner up in the U11 Boys.

Tim Raynes had his best run of the Mid Lancs season pulling through from the start to finish 3rd in a time of 37.33 and followed in by Chris Davies in 18th place (39.35) who commented after the Race that I wasn’t going to run today and was going to concentrate on a good long run on the Sunday but decided to run last minute. Proved to be a good decision and had a good run which is my last XC for this season. The course was a bit long and monotonous but for running on was probably the best we have had on which has been probably one of the hardest and toughest XC seasons I’ve run in since starting up running. Well done to Tim Raynes who had another excellent run, Mark Chippingdale who seems to be running better every race and the same with Paul Guinan. Well done to all the other Senior Men and all the other Harrier runners on the day. Enjoy the rest of the XC season, what is left of it anyway and hope the rest of your season goes well. Well done everybody”.

I didn’t realise until I just looked on the club website that I was 3secs short of the club v45 record so I must try another half soon!”
