Kinloch and Dunleavy lead the way for Burnden

In this, the second week of Burnden participation in the England Athletics Weekly 30 Challenge, last week’s results were reversed. This week 8 men took part, compared to 6 Burnden ladies, and they managed a total of 50,560 metres (31.4 miles). This easily beat the ladies total of 32,892.5 metres (20.4 miles), although the ladies still lead over the two weeks by over 4,500 metres. The website again had some difficulties this week with positioning of runners, as they kept on showing the person who had run the least distance in the number one position! However, they finally got that sorted out to show that Gwen Kinloch and Andy Dunleavy had won their respective vet 60 categories. Mark Cannon, Paul Christie and Francis Mackin all ended runners-up in their categories. The average distance of our first 12 runners was up on last week’s total and this week stood at just over 5960 metres. This put Burnden in 6th position in the overall team placings, one place up from last week.
We now have 25 members registered so let’s see if we can get both the men and the ladies participants into double figures for this weekend’s event.
