Double Category Wins For Sale Vets In Burtonwood 5
If you like your road races to be cheap, low key, easily accessible and providing a fast course then pencil the BURTONWOOD 5 in for next year. Others were attracted to the venue, 2 miles north off the M62 near Warrington, by the 4 p.m. start, leaving Sunday free for a long run; others simply by the lure of the free post race burger.
Boston U.S. based harrier MARTIN TIGHE recovered extremely well from his M50 victory in the 2nd sizzler (17.19) less than 48 hours earlier to record another category win. Again it was a very close run thing as his margin of victory was just one second as it was on the previous Thursday. 9th place overall in 28.49
Yorkshire based TERRY LONERGAN'S journey to the windswept plains of Cheshire also proved successful with his M60 category win. 57th overall in 34.04. A repeat of his time in May's Sale 5 but a better effort considering the strong gusting winds evident in the 2nd and 4th mile of the 2 lap course.
To complete a trio of first places , HANNAH TIGHE, was credited with first "Secondary girl" (?) in 41.55.
