The Lancashire Cross Country Championships were held at Witton Park in good conditions – an intermittent light drizzle but a comfortable temperature for running. The lack of recent rain meant underfoot conditions were good, with the only muddy spot at the gate at the bottom of the hill. However, times were in general a couple of minutes down throughout the field on last year. Three ladies turned out for the 3 lap ladies race, unfortunately one short of a senior team. Kath Hoyer ran strongly to lead the women home in 53 rd and her efforts were rewarded with a V60 bronze medal. Anne Mayers-Smith followed three places behind while Lucy Neighbour closed out the Wesham squad in 77 th spot.
The final race in the Interclub series is this Wednesday at 7pm. With the open completion currently tied, it’s all to play for. The Post code for Worden park is PR25 1DJ. The buffet is at the Priory club, Broadfield Drive PR25 1PD
