Sunday 16th October – Green Drive 5 Miles Lytham St Annes

Report from Mark Hall:

I made the long drive north to do the GD5. I did this event last year, running 10 seconds faster. It is potentially a PB race, however, as with all races near the coast, it can be windy and today it was. There is a near 2 mile straight section on the main road that was directly into a head wind, this slowed everyone. I was chasing a time, my reason for doing this race. I wanted to register a UK best V55 at 5miles, I only managed 4th best UK time , (very disappointing) I presently lead the UK V55 rankings at 10k, 10m and half marathon which also means I lead the UK national ladder V55 rankings and hope to finish 2016 as top UK V55 as I did last year, ( runbritain and power of 10) I think I was feeling the effects of 3 races on consecutve weekends. Winner: Luke Minns, Blackpool Wyre & Fylde AC , 26.03 Mark Hall, 10th, 28.21, 1st V55

  1. To be honest I like any kind of weather condition when I am running , except strong wind because makes running sometimes a struggle and it makes a significant difference in performances . 28.21 for 5 miles it is fabulous ..nowadays I could not achieve 28.21 neither in the Esholt 5k , never mind 5 miles . Well done to Mark H.
