Monthly Run Jan Report

Report sent in by Less. What a lovely day for a run, cold and sunny, infact the best weather for quite a few years. Kenny Mayor and Kenny Fowler did an excellent job setting out an excellent course. Colin Bishop maintained his winning ways by winning in 39.19 with Rob Jackson 2nd pushing him all the way.

Mike Barns won the 5k in 27.25 with Dave Tomlinson coming second in 29.11. Kenny wishes to thank Burnden runners for making up the numbers and making it a worthwhile race.

NMAC Christmas Handicap and AGM

There was a good turnout at the Christmas Predictor race, with more opting for the single lap 5km than the double loop 10k. Weather conditions were perfect, it turned out sunny and dry after overnight rain which left lots of puddles across the Flash. Rob Jackson and Colin Bishop set off at a pace on the 10k and finished together having not been able to make a break from each other all race long. Alex Rowe was the first finisher in the 5k closely followed by track sprinter Jason Newell, but it was left to Ken Fowler to win the Predictor with just 7 seconds over his time in the 10k and Jason Newell assisted by the previous day’s parkrun to also get within 7 seconds in the 5km. Sherry and mince pies followed in the Leigh Harriers clubhouse, but sadly only 9 members stayed from the Annual General Meeting afterwards, outnumbered by 10 committee members!

Pictures are available here.
