Coronavirus

Dear Members, it is with a heavy heart that in light of a recent statement from England Athletics, we have decided to suspend all club runs starting immediately up until the end of April at least. We understand this is disappointing news for club runs. If you organise your runs please be aware these will be at your own risk and not be endorsed by the club. Full statement from EA below. Stay safe everyone.

Chester 10k 8th March 2020

This fast course starts from the iconic Chester Racecourse and heads north-west out of the City along wide roads allowing runners to rapidly settle into race pace, then passing close to the picturesque village of Mollington, before returning to the heart of Chester City centre passing the historic Victorian town hall and Medieval Cathedral, before finishing on Eastgate Street with a spectacular backdrop of the Eastgate Clock.

Well done to Jonathon Mason who ran a quick 42.21 following his PB at Trafford the week before.

Trafford 10k 1St March 2020

Run North West is delighted to continue the legacy of the Trafford 10k, one of the UK’s most popular and quickest 10k’s.

The flat one lap course promised fast times for club and fun runners alike and was perfect for beginner runners or elite runners looking for a new personal best with road closures in operation across the entire course, limited to 950 entries this race sold out in quick time.

The promise of a PB didn’t slip the mind of Jonathon Mason who smashed his PB and raced round in a superb 41.48 and a chip position of 281st well within the 1st 3rd of all runners.

Well done Jonathon.

Accrington 10k 1St March 2020

Cannonball Events latest race was to be organising this fantastic race named in honour of Accrington’s (and probably Lancashire’s) most famous athlete Ron Hill. Ron, who was born in Accrington and won the Commonwealth Games and European Championship marathons. 

After a last minute decision, I decided to see what all the fuss was about and gave Stormin Brook a call to see where the Corsa was heading at the weekend, after a prompt pick up at 7.45 off we went and on arrival we soon met up with Andy Young for his 1st road race since recovery from injury, they say road race but 2 miles of it was on the local trail greenway but we still all had a decent race considering the windy conditions.

49th Neil Windle 44.14

77th Andy Young 47.01

144th Steve Brook 52.24 (2ndMV70)

Well done us 3

Bennidorm 10k 29Th Feb 2020

Mr International was taking a different approach to his latest trip to Bennidorm, gone was the 4 pints of San Miguel in the airport bar with the lads, in favour of a pleasant meander around the shopping malls of Terminal 3 with the wife, after several hours in Boots Paul finally got to Benners for an evening 10k along the promanade.

Expecting a small hidden race Paul was gobsmacked by the size of the event which took over the who area.

Paul ran another blinder finishing 22nd and 3rd in age catagory with a fantastic 35.55.

Another great race, well done lad.
