A&T X-Country Saturday 7th November 2015 at Hyndburn – by Mark Riches
As I was looking for somewhere to park I saw Josie Maley & Jackie Price walking along the pavement towards the course about 5 minutes before the start of the ladies race. However it turns out that the start had been delayed by 15 minutes due to an accident on the motorway so Josie had plenty of time!
Josie & Jackie had a great battle on the very muddy 5k course with Jackie getting the nod by 1 second 23.50 to 23.51. Susan Fletcher (24.11) was next with Michelle Fairclough (31.07) and Emma Higgins (32.59) completing the line-up – well done ladies
Next it was the turn of the men; 10k this time. First A&T finisher was Turbo Tim Campbell (pictured in action above) in a time of 40.39 with yours truly (Mark Riches) making a rare appearance on the country next in 47.48. Scott Priestley (49.59) and James Bentall (50.50) completed the line-up – well done lads
Thanks again to James for looking after the tent, flag & numbers again
Next race in the club champs is on Saturday 21st November at Leverhulme Park – make a note in your diaries
