A QUIETER WEEKEND
28th June 2016
A quieter race weekend compared with the last few weeks - let me know if you were running and aren't mentioned...
PHIL Eccleston was 1st M35 and 8th overall in the Colshaw Hall 10K with a time of 35mins 40secs.
He headed a turn-out of five Burnden members at this second running of the race round the scenic area surrounding Colshaw Hall in Over Peover, near Knutsford.
Joanne Darby was next to finish, crossing the finishing line in 1:02:35, just over two minutes ahead of Rita Ledwards who completed the course in 1:04:49, which gave her 13th place in the F55 category.
Melissa Eccleston recorded a 10K PB with her time of 1:06:09 and Gillian McGowan knocked just under three minutes off her time for the race 12 months ago, recording 1:09:46 this year.
Jeff and Christine Pendlebury were in Devon for the Torbay Half Marathon. Jeff completed the course in 2:19:45 with Christine putting in a strong showing to end well under two-and-a-half hours in 2:26:26.
Christophe Menand was first home overall in the Adlington Scouts White Bear Way 10-Mile event, completing the tough course through the valleys and woodland of Adlington, Blackrod and Rivington in 1:33:00.
Isaline and Martyn Pollitt completed the 21-mile route which extended over the moors in a time of 3:44:00 to earn fifth place overall.
Jackie Oakes and Lorraine Halwood managed to add some extra miles with one or two unplanned detours on the long route but found the finish line in 6:08:00.
