Wesham new year training group on Preston industrial estate

The Wesham club is currently on holiday with the first club meeting of the year on Monday, with the fifth winter handicap to enjoy as well.

Missed out of last week’s report as she was incorrectly credited with running for Blackpool, Michelle Tickle ran the Boxing Day 10k in Leyland, placing 17th woman and 3rd W45 in 49:01 (48:50 chip time) to finish 78th in the run. This was her first race since being ill last year with coronavirus and having been set back. She has come back in top form after cutting her teeth and getting back to speed through a series of Saturday morning parkruns. This time last year she was in fine form and following the Wesham “Move Every Day” challenge in January she completed 253.4 miles in February by running the equivalent of three lengths of Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway in the Wesham Virtual Hadrian’s Wall Challenge. Then in March she followed this up with the 192-mile out and back of Wesham’s Virtual West Highland Way, Milngavie to Fort William, completing this with another three stages (some 35 miles) of a third trip ending (conceptually) in Inverarnan at the north end of Loch Lomond.

Ribble Valley 10k and Rob Danson heading the chasing pack

It was a good Christmas for Wesham members notwithstanding the impending doom of Omicron, with a long weekend due to the offset bank holidays. Tom Crabtree and Emma Davies who tied the knot two days before Christmas set a joyous tone for the end of a very difficult year with more yet to come. It was understandably quiet for athletics but there was Christmas Day action with a few local parkruns, and 10k runs on Boxing Day and the Monday bank holiday.
