Some great running at the ASICS GREATER MANCHESTER MARATHON including a PB for Andy Burnett. Neil was 1st back for the harriers thus going to the top of the 2016 marathon club leaderboard and special mention for Lins who had warmed up by doing the COLEDALE HORSESHOE on the previous day.

Cheryl completed the YORKSHIRE PLUSNET HALF MARATHON in Sheffield in 1.43.24. Here is her report:-

“There were three races within one, Half marathon, King/Queen of the Hill and 10k challenge. The first mile is fairly flat and then it climbs up to Mile 5……Mile 4-5 is a timed King of the mountain which is just about the time I started to flag! After mile 5 the course is mainly downhill with a few undulating sections and a cheeky climb to the finish! The last 10k is also timed.

It was great course loads of supporters out all the way round, think the nice weather helped in that respect, would definitely recommend if you like a challenge.”


Carl was 17th out of 53 runners in 54.57 at the new THOMAS THEYER FELL RACE from the White Hall Outdoor Education Centre just outside Buxton. 


Parkrun Corner

Mark O and Danny O 1-2 at Marple, Lizzy ran at Delamere, Laurie and Wyatt Barlow at Conwy and 16 runners in Manor Park where there were PBs for Ezme (again!), Claire and Helen Litaba. Great running girls!
