ROUND THE RUNWAY 2015
On a pleasant, sunny evening in April, many Sale Harriers descended on the sleepy little village of Mobberley to take part in what is rapidly becoming a popular annual event. The race takes in glorious views of Manchester International Airport (if you can take your eyes off your feet for a moment) as well as scenic Cheshire lanes and trails. Our top Sale Harriers made a race of their own taking 1st and 2nd places in the process, Dave Marsh winning in a time of 27:42 (5min 13sec per mile including a stiff climb away from the river Bollin at the 3 mile point in addition to some uneven paths leading up to that point) and Nigel Martin (27:57), followed not far behind by Callum Rowlinson (29:23) for 5th place. Next came Steve Mc Carron taking 1st vet 40 (29:52) followed by Callum’s dad Gary taking 1st vet 50 in 30:40.
Next came Carl Barber (30:40) v40, Tim Kennedy (30:59) and Rob Flannery (31:01). Mike Ashby was next with 31:08, Gary Lyons (31:27) and Andy Mooney (31:48). Club stalwart Glen Savage took 2nd vet 50 with 32:18 follwed by Wesh Castles ladie team manager Richard ‘Eddie’ Edwards (32:31).
Another category win came next with Aidan Raftery taking the v 55 crown with 32:59, Peter Shipley came next with 34:03 closley followed by Steve Parry v 50 in 34:10. Sarah Douglas was our top female entrant with 34:13 to take 6th place. Steve Surridge was next with 35:15, Mike Wharton (35:41) and Richard McHugh (35:47).
Anne Chinoy is getting back to top form to take 1st lady 40 with 35:49 and Alex Jones was first U17 with 38:35. Then came Deirdre Mc Carthy (38:43) and Jerry Smith who was 3rd vet 60 with 39:08. Frank Cordingley v50 was next with 39:16, Claire McCarron (39:26), Katherine Barker (40:03), Martin Smedley 4th vet 60 (40:14) closely followed by daughter Alice Smedley (40:42). Next came Danielle Beard (41:23), Helen Carter (41:36) and Carla Ousey L40 (43:18).
Sale Harriers took the mens team prize with Dave Marsh, Nigel Martin and Callum Rowlinson, and the ladies were 2nd with Sarah Douglas, Anne Chinoy and Deirdre McCarthy (only 4 points off the win).
Thanks also to a great support from Jenny Miles, Lynda Rowlinson, Dave Rodgers, Sarah Barker and Paul Barrett.
