Henderson’s End

Thursday 3rd June 2010

In another local race dominated by the local P&B contingent, Horwich had 12 runners out. It was a beautiful summers evening for the race starting from Rivington Barn, and visiting the Mast, Two Lads, and the Pike.

First home for Horwich was Simon Parkinson in 6th place, followed by Karl Ward in 12th, and Albert Sunter in 13th, also picking up first V50.

Duddon Valley

Saturday 5th June 2010

Only a week after running Jura, Mick Green was back in action again on the long course at Duddon Valley. Mick finished in a time of 3:39:33. Ed Swift was also out again (2 days after Henderson’s End) and completed the course in 5:53:37.

Gordon Stone opted to do the “short” course, completing in a time of 2:38:13. Presumably Gordon was taking it easy before starting his GR10 next weekend. Good luck Gordon!
