Mid Cheshire 5K Road Race

Fri 27 April 2018, Kingsley

Eight members of Preston Harriers joined over 500 runners in descending on Kingsley in Cheshire for the Mid-Cheshire 5k which also doubled as the England Athletics national 5k championships. The organisers had promised a lightning fast course and with go time approaching, the conditions went from rainy to near perfect for racing. The result: countless PBs with the top 25 runners all recording sub 15-minute finish times. The stand out performances for Preston Harriers came from Lee Foley who was first Harrier home in 17:16, David Watson (17:40) who was 3rd in the male vet-50 category and Kevin Hesketh (20:02) who finished 2nd in the male vet-60 category. Other Harriers competing where Alex Venables (17:35), Simon Robinson (17:57), Steve Boardman (vet-40 20:43), Susan Ashcroft (vet-55 24:09) and Julie Tyrer (vet-40 25:01). This race was also a counter for the club’s road championship with maximum points in the men’s race going to Lee Foley, whilst Susan Ashcroft took maximum points in the women’s race.
