OULTON PARK HALF MARATHON
No sooner had the cross-country season finished than members of the endurance section were back out on the roads for the Oulton Park half marathon. The distance consisted of 6 laps of the race track with each lap containing some sharp ‘bumps’! This was a successful event for Sale, with a number of people using the race as part of their marathon training and gaining success for the effort that they have been putting in. The Sale Men took the 1st Team Prize with Andrew Carlin coming 1st in the individual race, Steve Townley coming in 3rd and Chris Green finishing 16th (4th V40). See below for how all our athletes got on.
ANDREW CARLIN finished 1st in a new course record of 1:14:19 eclipsing his previous PB set at Wilmslow last year.
STEVEN TOWNLEY finished 3rd in 1:18:13 after a strong final couple of laps. He finished just outside his PB of 1:17:57.
CHRIS GREEN finished 16th (4th V40) in 1:23:57, narrowly missing his PB of 1:23:32.
TRACEY TAYLOR finished 19th in 1:40:36 setting a fantastic new PB.
SAMANTHA WHEELER finished 50th in a brilliant 1:53:54.
TIM RAINEY finished in 1:53:54. One of Sales endurance kings, Tim had run in the National XC Championships the previous day and was acting as a pacer for Sam.
ALICE SMEDLEY finished 54th in a great 1:54:59.
