A trio of Preston Harriers headed south for the 48th running of the Parbold Hill Race. The course is run over the fields and tracks of both Parbold and Harrock Hills and is 6.75 miles long with 900 feet of climb. On what was a sunny, mild late winter day the conditions were extremely muddy for the usual large field of 442 competitors. First Harrier to cross the line was Andy Grimshaw in 83rd position with a time of 55.45. He was followed in by Phil Lakeland (87.07) in 377th, and the evergreen George Arnold (101.04), 425th and 1st M80.
