Calder Vale 10 – Friday 10th April

Still overcast day for this hilly 10 mile road race which 5 Harriers started. Simon Parkinson led them home in 1:02:04 for 13th place. Ian Charters (79th & 4/7 M55) followed in 1:11:53 with Keith Makin (140th & 3/9 M60) in 1:19:35 and Pauline Charters (195th & 8/15 FV45) in 1:29:33. Unfortunately, Gaynor Higson aggravated a calf injury and retired rather than do further damage. Race was won by Mat Nuttal (V40) of Blackburn Harriers in 55:01 and first lady was Lynn Manir-Jolley (FV35) of Wigan Phoenix in 1:04:04 from a field just short of 250.
