Poor conditions are the norm at the Trimpell 20 in Lancaster, which is one of the races used as a long training run, but also to race it, for people who are running a Spring marathon in April. Simon Collins was 23rd in 2:10.56, and Chris Wales, leaving the mud of cross country behind for a week at least, was 62nd in 2:23.09. Kevin Curran was 81st in 2:27.06 and Sue Wickham recorded 3:31.25. Sue had a nasty fall after the race as she slipped awkwardly, and has had to have some surgery on an elbow. Everyone at Preston Harriers wishes her well.
