Wesham ladies in the evening sun

 

The third round of the 2018 Inter Club Grand Prix was hosted by Preston Harriers at a new venue but utilising a revised course through Avenham and Miller Parks with a 4.1-mile 2-lapper with a new finish to the monument below the ex-North Western Hotel. Wesham had a good number of members competing but missing some key team members. Gareth Booth made an impressive debut, finishing 3rd overall in 22:44 and 2nd M45, just over a minute behind winner Dave Rigby. Steve Swarbrick had a great run to come in 7th in 23:08, 3rd M45. Third in for Wesham was David Taylor in 16th place with 23:52, with Steve Abbott 21st in 24:37, 1st M40 but 7th Over-40. Tessa Robinson was first woman in 25:06, placing 31st overall and 11th for the Open Masters category. Lee Barlow was close behind in 33rd place with 25:19, 12th in the Masters. Mark Belfield finished 37th in 25:34 and Paul Gregory 42nd with 26:04; Thomas Crabtree came in 54th in 26:43 and Carl Groome 64th in 27:21. Mark Renshall was 69th in 27:42; Matty Chamberlain 71st with 27:51; Matthew Atherton 76th in 28:07; Neil Gregson 78th with 28:13; Lee Nixon 79th in 28:16; and John Collier 83rd and 4th M60 in 28:28. The men’s team finished 2nd, a great result.  Helen Lawrenson finished 6th woman in 28:36 and 2nd in the Women’s Masters;  Kay Twist was 41st and 29th with 34:10; Maureen Danson 47th and 23rd with 34:52; Kerry Eccles 58th and 29th in 36:14; Pauline Eccleston 59th and 30th with 36:17; Anne Berry 77th and 45th in 38:24; and Tanya Barlow and Louisa Denye 84th and 85th (50th and 51st) in 39:07 and 39:09. The Wesham Ladies despite a good start placed 6th team, with the Masters finishing 4th. For the Men’s Masters categories, the Open Masters (Booth, Swarbrick, Abbott, Robinson, Barlow and Groome) were 2nd, a good result again, with the M50s 5th (Collier, Nigel Shepherd (90th overall; 21st in 28:37), Richard Davies (118th and 28th in 29:52), Stephen Browne (130th and 32nd with 30:38)) 5th; the M60s finishing 3rd with Collier, Shepherd and Phil Leaver (148th and 12th in 31:41).
