Red Rose Cross Country League Race, Rossendale – Saturday 3rd December 2016

In the final race of the Red Rose Cross Country League at Marl Pitts, Rossendale, Preston Harriers’ Alan Appleby finished the senior men’s race in 145th place and 3rd Vet 65, which along with two earlier first places was enough to secure him the overall win in the series for the Vet 65 category.

The tough course around sports pitches has a series of terraces to climb before going through a deep muddy section of forestry, followed by some tricky descents back for the next lap. First Preston Harrier home was Simon Collins (33rd), followed by John Griffiths (61st) and Phil Lakeland (178th). In the ladies race Sue Wickham was 57th.
