349 toed the line on the Stanley Park track in Blackpool for the AUTUMN BREAKER 10K which involved 2 flat, traffic free circuits. Favourable autumn weather meant dozens entered on the day to contribute to a record entry for the annual race. The event gave (just) 2 members the chance to follow in the footsteps of the elite squad which competed so well in the Northern 6 stage relay at the same venue recently.
Derek Walkden ran a solid race, but once more just failed to attain his 40 minute mark target, whilst Terry Lonergan nudged his season’s 10K time down again but he too missed his target, which was 47 minutes. Close for both, but no cigars as they say!
22nd DEREK WALKDEN 40.22 2ND M45
80TH TERRY LONERGAN 47.06 3RD M65
