Port Sunlight 10K, 18 June 2017

Weather conditions were very much appropriate for the Port Sunlight 10k. It was an absolute scorcher but a fabulous atmosphere. Race times were understandably a lot slower than what we would have normally expected but the 10 Mossley Hill runners did our club proud. Congratulations to our category winners Sue Rogers, back to her winning ways, and Allan Lawson, showing consistency over all distances. It was Dom Cooper who was first home for Mossley Hill and Helen Davies led our ladies back with impressive runs coming from Helen Roddy, Cathy Rigby, Nikki Hannaway and Lisa Pritchard.
