Garstang Half Marathon

Three harriers competed in the Garstang Half Marathon on Sunday. Good conditions for the race albeit with one section of flooded road to traverse just before nine miles. The “undulating” course determined challenging times with Paul Muller first harrier, 4th overall and first vet (and so 1st V50) in 1:21:17 whilst Philip Eccleston finished an excellent 22nd in 1:28:54 and V55, Gordon Stone, 112th of the 189 finishers in 1:51:20. The race was won by Accrington’s Shaun Livesey in 1:17:41 and Southport’s Amanda Crook took the ladies’ honours in 1:26:19.
