Lancaster 10k

Well done to our 24 runners who ran the race today and thank-you to our 11 supporters who turned out for us and dragged us up ‘that hill’ with their vocal encouragement.

Despite there being a major error on the course with the runners going off route and some completing over 11km, it didn’t dampen the spirits, with it being a very successful day for the club, both the Men (Ant Cassidy, Dom Cooper and Roy Hughes) and the Ladies (Julie Houghton, Becky Sargeant and Faye Brown) winning the team awards. We also had three individuals winning their age categories, Ant Cassidy MV40, Julie Houghton FV45, Mary McDonald FV70

I big thank-you to John Shaw who organised the meal at ‘The Mill at Conder Green’ , a great choice and excellent food and to Di Rogers for organising the coach, and of course thanks to the club for laying on the coach for free and paying for the main course.

Our members can choose to compete in races throughout the year. Our in-house club Championship is comprised of 20 races chosen at the beginning of each year by our club captain Tony Metcalfe. Take a look at the calendar to see the races in the Championship this year.
