Rivington Pike Race

Rivington Pike Race 30th March

Our annual Pike Race attracted a large field of over 300 runners and was very well organised by Pete Ramsdale and his team. With the added strain of our junior races being in the English Junior Fell Championship this year the races went like clock work. Tom Cornthwaite won for the second year in a row from Gary Priesley who used to run for us. First finisher for us in 18th place was Dave Milliken after a strong race backed up by Gareth Booth and Rob Jackson doing his 30 th pike race in succession was good enough to win the Team prize. Our first lady was Lindsey Brindle 6th and 80th overall after a good race making up places on the descent. Michael Crook and Paul Murray where first o/65 and o/70 respectively.
