Report from Tony Walker
A quick pre dinner 6.30pm (although dinner was cancelled!!) sat evening 5k! 5 laps of the cycle track and still enough time to hit the wall on the last lap! Still managed 19.19 so 2nd best time this year. This really is a simple but great event for all ages. At one point in the race I was literally surrounded by 5 young Preston athletes. I don’t who was more scared me or them!! There were also a number of other groups there and I thought it would be great to get some juniors over. I’ll have a word with Hugh!
The male winner of the A race was Jamie Webb of Liverpool in a very speedy 14.33 and for the ladies Olivia Mason of Border Harriers in 16.55. The first 8 were under 15mins and the first 23 under 15.30. Serious stuff!!
