Sunday 12-1-15

There was a superb Green Army turn out at the third Border League race at Birkenhead Park. The mens team continued their push for promotion by winning the Division 2 race while the ladies were 3rd in their Division 1 race. This leaves the men in second place in division 2 and the ladies in 4th in Division 1. First man home for Helsby was Colin Bishop, first lady was Joanne Lacking. Great running everyone, lets keep the momentum going!!!!

The same day also saw Helsby runners at the Sunday League Cross Country at Runcorn Park racing as part of a combined team with Lymm and Warrington running clubs. Gill Collen from Warrington Running Club submitted the following report via Jackie Keasley.

“Well done for flying the flag for Helsby; I didn’t expect to see as many today as there was the clash with the Borders league and you might be pleased to tell the girls that HLW ladies were first team today and 3= with Knowsley, behind Birkenhead with Spectrum still leading in the overall standings.

It would be good if the Helsby girls can get out there for the next two races and give Spectrum a run for their money! So, HLW have won two races and so have Spectrum but in our other races we were placed much lower, 8th and a 5th to their 2nd and 3rd; I’m sure they will have a strong team out for the last race (theirs!).”

Lastly, Phillip Roberts was Helbys sole representative at the Cannock Chase trig point race where he finished in 47th position out of around 170 runners in a time of 1 hour 44 minutes run over a very complicated course. Well done Phil.

Cheers
