Smell my cheese – Greg turns into Alan Partridge after the 10 miler…
Greg Webster and Roy Rowands took on a couple of 10 milers, the Guy’s 10 and the Stockport 10 (that’s 10 MILES Roy) did great times of 1:13 and 1:15 respectively. What a prize that cheese makes!
The 14th December was the inaugural running of the Lee Mills relay – a fell relay which would be testing in the best of conditions, but the snow, ice, mud and driving rain made it all the more so. Congratulations and big high fives due then to our 4 runners who took on the challenge.
Carmen Byrne was first out for the Harriers, starting us off with a stonking run which saw her 3rd fastest lady on the day. Next up was Roy Rowlands, keeping us well in the running with a 1:11 time in the worst part of the day. Mick Horan was next up and in spite of getting a bit lost in the clag managed to pull back a couple of places. Our anchor leg was John Raho, who overcame his works do head to bring in the 16th fastest time on the day and bring the Harriers home in 13th place.
A fantastic result and a credit to a great team.
Carolyn Lee made her fell debut and joined John Kirkham and Mick Horan for a spot of puddle jumping in the foul weather on the Haworth moors.
Mick came in 26th in his category in a fast 39.49. Peter Lee running for the first time for Holcombe came in at 51:16, Carolyn next in at 56.07 and John Kirkham hot on her tail on 61:25 .
Great running in atrocious conditions. Hard as Holcombe Harriers is the new saying!
And so our Holcombe Year has ended! A great one was had by all. News of the first race of our championship at the Ribble Valley 10k is of course in December but new championship, new slate.
Great going Harriers – we should all be proud of ourselves
