Report from Mark Hall:
I headed for Blackpool for the Northern veterans 10k championship race. The event was run along the upper and lower promenades, this would normally ensure a fast time. However, the 3 miles slog along the lower promenade was run into a massive headwind that slowed everyone considerably and even Andy Jones, (British team runner) only just got under 33 mins! I managed to win my Championship so the long drive was worth it even if the time was slow due to the conditions. I saw Billy at the start but not after so not sure if he was happy with his run.
Winner: Andy Jones, Doha Bay Running Club 32.49. Mark Hall, 36.20, 6th (1st V55), Andrew Rayner, 54.50, 150th
