Preston Inter Club Race

Wed 13 June 2018 The third race of the Summer road inter club series was hosted by Preston Harriers last week on a warm night, with a forecast of rain. Fortunately, the rain only started after the majority of the 329 runners had completed the race, which was a shade over four miles, in and around Avenham Park.

Harriers had five runners in the top ten, with David Rigby being a clear winner in 21.34. Rob Affleck was 2nd in 22.22 and Niall Malone 5th in 22.53. Richard Smith and Karl Hodgson were 8th and 9th respectively and Nathan Hilditch was 11th. Simon Robinson (17th), Dave Watson (19th), Simon Collins (20th) and Andy Whaley (22nd) were the open team counters, seeing Harriers to a team win.

Jenny Wren was 4th lady overall, and first to cross the line for Harriers. Laura Conn, Jade Bebbington, Kate Lakeland and Kelly Grainger were the remaining ladies counters for a team placing of 3rd. There was a huge turn out of helpers and marshals on the night to ensure everything went smoothly and, it was obviously going to affect some of the team categories, so incomplete teams were posted in both the men`s vet 60 and ladies vet 40 categories.
