Jack Villiers only started running two years ago and this is his first year as an U15, and this weekend, he had the honour of representing his county in this race. This reflects the hard work and consistent training that he has put in. He finished 198th out of 303 in a time of 21:13.
243 runners toed the line for this flat out and back 10K on the cycle paths in Lancaster on a dry warm spring morning. A clear win for Lee Parrington with Terry Lonergan a minute faster than on the same course last month.

102 Terry Lonergan 55:39
After a great run last week in the Stan Bradshaw Pendle round, it was back out on the fells again for Lorraine Slater in this challenging 31.7 mile / 4396 ft of climb race. Lorraine saw off the opposition to finish first lady. In view of the conditions, most people were slower this year, but Lorraine managed to get a 2 minute PB. Not only that, but Lorraine led the Barlickers home.

A solid return to racing after a 6 months break for Ray Edgar on this flat out and back course in Lancaster. It is on traffic free “cycle” paths by the river in Lancaster which seemingly escaped the snow which affected the rest of the country.

This was the first serious test for Tom Corrigan since his recovery from injury and 7th place is a good result given the quality at the front of the field.
Lorraine Slater was back out on the terrain that she loves and had a great race, finishing 2nd female, behind the brilliant Holly Page of Calder Valley. She was naturally first V40.
It was great to see our younger runners out in this race with Zac Kaye, Victoria Peel and Hannah Newbold all picking up podium places in their age categories.
