Turslack Fell Race 8 miles 26th July

On one of the hottest days of the year this race attracted a smaller entry than usual with the heat putting a lot of runners off racing. The race was won by John Green of Preston in 1.20.41 after a number of runners went wrong in the latter stages although there was no problem with visibilty. Tony Hesketh finished 12th in one of his favourite races in 1.29.55 remarkably second over sixty five. Michael Kay ran within himself and finished in 22nd in 1.35.45 and the final Horwich runner was David Barnes who recorded 2.15.21 for 56th place.
