Lancaster Half Marathon - Sunday 1st December 2013
Lone Preston Harrier Christopher Tully relished the scenic half marathon route along the banks of the River Lune and continued to astonish his rivals with his rich vein of form to record a second PB of the weekend with a very creditable 78.48 which was rewarded with the spoils of attaining 3rd overall.
Guy’s 10 mile Road Race - Sunday 1st December 2013
The Guys 10 Miler continues to be a firm favourite with a strong turnout of 345 athletes on the day. A well marshalled flat course welcomed 9 Preston Harriers with Gethin Butler leading the challenge right at the start. A strong group pressurised Butler over the initial miles but as he pushed on his strength paid dividends as he attained overall victory in 54.53 1st MV45. Next to go over the line was Neil McDonald who doubled up on his weekend of racing with a strong season’s best 61.55 3rd MV45. He was pushed all the way by John Wealthy 64.12, Steve Young 64.56, Alan Martin 69.45, Michael Brennand 71.32, and Ambi Tipping 74.31 with Alan Appleby in 74.32 and Loy Kalasiram 74.57 to complete the Preston team entry.
Wesham 10k Road Race - Saturday 30th November 2013
There was a definite competitive atmosphere at the Wesham 10K last weekend due to local rivalry between Preston Harriers and Wesham Road Runners. However Team Rossendale emerged to spice things up with a spirited effort right at the start to challenge all. Preston Harrier David Rigby made good right at the gun with a lightning start. As the miles ticked over Rigby built on his lead to eradicate any late challenge, storming the line in a season’s best of 31.43. Rob Affleck’s race was a strategic exercise as his protagonists from Rossendale pressurised him throughout. Affleck’s patience paid off as he was able to ramp up his cadence to attain 32.27 1st MV40 and 2nd overall. Christopher Tully continued his emergence as an athlete to be regarded as he again raised his benchmark with a cracking PB of 34.23 1st MV35 and 8th overall. He was pushed all the way by Jason Parker in 34.41.
