Road Runners Training
Didcot parkrun in Oxfordshire was our warm-up for our “proper” race on Sunday 24th November. Muddy grass 3 laps round a field – I could maybe one day get myself a pair of trail shoes and join the LMAC Senior ladies XC team…..I did say maybe! Yes, I did actually enjoy the parkrun. Moving on…………
Well on Sunday, 3rd of November, I experienced my first trail marathon with IGUN, ( it's grim up north).
Several months ago Lancaster and Morecambe AC member David Wilkinson decided to take up a 60th birthday challenge by entering the St Anton Arlberg marathon in the Austrian Alps.
Last weekend saw the National Cross Country Relays at Berry Hill Park, Mansfield. As well as a small junior section taking part the club also entered a Senior Men's team which would take on the challenging 4x5km cross-country route.
There were a good number of Lancaster & Morecambe AC runners taking part in the the Wigan 10k, which attracted a big field of 3000 finishers. The race was the first in the club's road race championships and four of the runners took advantage of the fast course to achieve personal best times.
Lancaster and Morecambe Athletic Club Members Carole and David Wilkinson were on holiday in Shropshire and entered the Lilleshall Monumental Multi Terrain 10K Race.
