Friday 29 March 2019, Lancaster A team of 8 Harriers made the short trip to Lancaster on Friday night for the March edition of the “power of 5km” race, a popular race which is building momentum, containing a sub 20 minute A-race and an open B-race very similar to the podium races..
Up first was the A-race with Wesley Wilkinson running a brilliant pb in 16.31 for 5th place. Next in was a resurgent Simon Robinson in 17.08; great to see the return of his form after a few weeks out. Lee Foley was next in 17.19, closely followed by Alex Venables who posted a great run in 17.35, even more impressive considering he’s deep into marathon training. Next through was Dougie Potter who shattered his pb, running 18.36. Another pb was broken by young Luke Suffolk who broke sub 20 running 19.53.
Now to the B-race. There were only two Harriers in this one, with Scarlett Allison running strongly to post 23.49 and Matthew Suffolk was not far behind completing the finishing Harriers.
This is a well organised race for anyone wanting a pb and it will only grow in time to come.
