Rivington Pike Half Marathon
Five brave harriers recently took to the tough trails around Rivington, Yarrow and Anglezark reservoirs up to White Coppice for the Rivington Pike half marathon. Despite the hot day, all enjoyed the well organised event.
Club newcomer, Louise Robbins was the first home in 1.52.53. Showing promising prowess since she joined in June, she's notched up several PB's - 10k in 43:20 (City of Manchester), 5k in 21:04 (Sale Sizzler (3), HM 1:39.17 (Wilmslow) and marathon 3:48.18 (Berlin). Seasoned campaigner Miran Aprahamian recorded 2.07.17 (chip); Lynda Rowlinson, new to the L50 category, recorded 2.08.58 (chip) and was 'pleased' considering the heat and hills. Katie Reece, establishing a reputation as a long distance trail runner, crossed the line 2.14.08 (chip)
