Sunday 18th October: Green Drive 5 miles. Lytham St Annes

Report from Mark Hall:

I headed west to do the above event, it was a long drive for a 5mile race but it turned out to be worth the journey.
There are not too many fast 5 mile events around. Terry Lonegan suggested the above event and it really is a PB circuit, flat with a railway bridge the only obstacle. I ran the first 2 miles with someone then struggled alone, I was happy to have set a UK best [V55] by 2 seconds.

Mark was 11th and 1st V55 in a time of 28.20 (UK best V55) out of 300 starters.The race was won by karl Billington (Blackburn Harriers) in 25.18.
