Fells, Roads And Trails..
As the club T & F athletes are busy with their weekly T & F regional and national leagues, the club has a similarly busy endurance section who fly the flag on the region's road, fells and trails. Unfortunately, not all use their club website to promote their success and inform running colleagues. However, well done to those who do so and we have the following noteworthy recent events to report on.......
A few hardy Sale Harriers took on the challenging Millbrook Monster 10 km, tough but rewarding multi-terrain 10 km race in the hills above Stalybridge. Paul Green (M40) had a fine run to finish 2nd, with Mike Hatch (5th) and Phil Scowcroft also running well. Jerry Smith was 1st M55 and very pleased to be over 2 minutes quicker than last year. Lauren Davies was the sole female from the club and also had a good run. All finishers were rewarded with a well-earned free hot dog!
More recently, on September 1st, Zoe Gmerek, Jenny Miles and Jerry Smith headed off to the seaside for the Blackpool Hilton 10 km for what was advertised as a fast, flat 10 km along the promenade. Unfortunately a strong headwind for most of the race made for tough conditions, but that didn't stop Zoe from running well to finish as 3rd female and 1st F35 (with some pacing help from Jerry), or Jenny Miles from recording a PB and winning her age category. After picking up their prizes the runners made the most of a day out in Blackpool with fish and chips and a trip to the pier. A fine and successful trip!
