Penny Lane Striders 10k


25 June 2017


Twelve Preston Harriers made the short trip over to Liverpool to run the ever-popular Penny Lane Striders 10k on Sunday 25th June. The day started out drizzly but the rain cleared as the race progressed along the Mersey Promenade through Otterspool Park with the rave cave band cheering everyone on and back to race HQ at Riversdale Police Park.

First home for Harriers was Karl Hodgson in 15th position in a time of 36 minutes, followed in 32nd position by Lee Foley in 38:30, Mark Billington 66th in 40:48 and Andrew Tranter 106th in 42:56. The first Harriers lady was Susan Ashcroft, who was 236th in 51:24. Sue Wickham was 315th in 56:29, marking a fine return to form after injury and new member Julie Tyrer in 320th knocked over 2 minutes off her personal best to record 56:48. Olga Wiggins, Angela Tranter, Helen Boyer and Kari Edwards also ran the superbly well marshalled course. Dougie Potter had to retire due to a calf injury but will hopefully soon be back on the roads.
