Blackpool Illuminations 10K
A relatively small field of 354 lined up for this Fylde coast 10K, compared to the larger Beaverbrooks 10k , also on the Blackpool promenade which attracts several thousand every year. A rare Saturday event starting at 11 a.m. so a long wait for those staying to witness the second night of the annual Illuminations spectacle. Only one Sale Harrier , M60 TERRY LONERGAN, made the journey, running his 130th 10K and managing to win the age category in 42.50. But he was made to work hard for the victory , racing shoulder to shoulder with Steve Pierce of Kendal for long periods before nudging away to win by 5 seconds.
