Through The Villages Race - Sunday 3rd November 2013
Last Sunday saw David Rigby dominate proceedings at the annual Through The Villages Race, starting at the incline outside The Dressers Arms Pub.

Next in for Preston Harriers was Stephen Young with 56.16 and he was pushed all the way by Paul Lightfoot in 56.27. Still a little jaded by his superb sub 3 hour marathon, Kevin Hunt was next to storm the line in 61.23 with Harriers’ lone lady Roisin Turner pushing hard in 67.13 and stalwart Harrier Phil Lakeland completing the Preston Harrier entry in 79.43.
Mid Lancs Cross Country League, Burnley - Saturday 26th October 2013
The first cross country fixture of the season saw some good performances from members of Preston Harriers. First on the programme was the Under 11 girls race, where the first harrier to finish was Darcey Lonsdale in 16th place. She was followed in by Annie Duffy (18th), Lucy Treaddell (22nd) Lauren Tunstall (24th), Anwen Butler-Chattell (45th), Abbie Martin (56th), Sasha Lyttle (63rd) and Lorna McDonald (68th). There was also a good turnout in the Under 11 boys race, with fine performances from Liam Blackwell in 9th, Robert Ellis (10th), Thomas Durney (13th), Joshua Green (34th), Aaron Halliday (50th), Harvey Halliday (54th) and Thomas Haworth (55th).Jasmine Jolly had an outstanding run to come 2nd in the Under 13 girls race, but the runner who beat her was a non-scorer, which leaves Jasmine heading the league. She was backed up by Tegan Macuras, Sophie Rotheram and Abbie Rowland to place 3rd team. The Under 13 boys were also 3rd team; Shaun Beckett was the best placed runner in 10th and the other runners were Luke Parker (15th), Kieran Dunn (21st), Euan Marsden (24th) and Billy Delany (44th).
