Derwentwater Trail Race 3rd Sept

This trail race attracted a large field of over 300 runners on a very wet day with rain constant throughout the race. The race was won by ex Horwich runner Russell Madams of Keswick. First for us with a splendid run was Rachel Thompson in 22nd place and third lady and she felt that another mile would have caught the second lady. Our first male finisher was Phil Eccleston 46th a good run by a consistent runner, Tony Hesketh was less than a minute behind winning the first O/60 Category. More over sixties followed with Pete Heneghan 216th, Alan Blinkhorn 250th and Barry Tyson 272nd who all ran well in the conditions.
