A fine Sunday morning in Mickle Trafford saw 245 runners line up for the Sutton 6, which despite the name is an accurately measured 10km. In the excellent conditions the race was won by Nick Jones of Spectrum in 31:39, the 2nd fastest 10km by a Cheshire runner this year.
The race consisted of one short lap and one long lap with a few undulations to keep it interesting.
This race was the last in the Cheshire Grand Prix and consequently had a high turn out from many of the Cheshire clubs.
The Helsby results were
49 Ian Landucci 39:36
92 Geoff Shaw 43:11
129 Dave Madders 46:51
151 Ian Hilditch 48:28
159 Carol Shaw 49:14
211 Janet Shaw 55:39

With our supporter in chief not too well at present excellent encouragement was provided by Adair, Mike Searle and Andy Smith. However they have all got a long way to go to compete with Joe’s vocal support.
