Hollins Green 5k Road Race Sat 30th May

An excellent 5k course, in so much that it was flat enough, and had a nice setting outside the Black Swan, with the start, finish, and the first 1k marker all within 50m.
Gareth Booth confessed to liking the race which he has attended for the last three years clocking – 17.58 (27th) in 2007 – 16.49 (10th) in 2008 and this year another nice progression to 16.17 and first place, on a super sunny day that was maybe just a little too hot for some. Alastair Murray made a late decision to run and I think was satisfied with his fourth overall just ten seconds behind Gareth
