Senior Race Reports (35)

If you have raced for our club please email us your reports and pictures for us to feature here!

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.

My name is Linda Walker and I am 54 years of age. I began running in January 2016 when Lancaster parkrun was born.

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.

The road runners of Lancaster & Morecambe AC have been busy racing around the region in the past month.

Staveley Lakeland Trail 17K 6th May and Wigan 10K Trial 7th May

The 37th London Marathon took place last Sunday and among the record 39,487 finishers tackling the 26.2 miles were six Lancaster & Morecambe AC runners.

I went down to London on Saturday to run the London Marathon.

Lancaster and Morecambe Athletic Club Members Carole and David Wilkinson were on holiday in Shropshire and entered the Lilleshall Monumental Multi Terrain 10K Race.

Having been brought down to the club at 9 years old in 1988 I’ve been very lucky to see the club move from the old cinder track at the College to Salt Ayre.

January
Lancaster & Morecambe AC road runners started the year well with a large turnout at the popular Garstang 10k.

Road runners from Lancaster & Morecambe AC enjoyed some excellent performances in local events throughout December to round off a great year.

Lancaster & Morecambe AC road runners were out in force at the Windmill 10k in Lytham St. Annes last weekend,

Senior road runners recent reports round up......

Lancaster & Morecambe AC runners travelled to Newcastle last weekend to take part in the Great North Run,

On Saturday July the 9th I went up to Keswick to take part in the Borrowdale 21k Trail Run, part of a series of trail races that weekend, including a 5k along the shores of Derwentwater, and a marathon taking in Scafell Pike.

If someone said to me five years ago would you run a marathon I would have said no. I love running and love the improvements I have made.

Held on Ilkley Moor this classic 8.4 km navigational fell race was established in 1985 to commemorate the life of an acclaimed Yorkshire sportsman.

This was to be my first ever marathon at grand old age of 52 although I've run 3 half marathons. I did run marathon distance with Ben Smith (the 401 guy) a few weeks back around Morecambe but this doesn't really count as we had stops for cake and bacon butties! In the run up I hadn't run in 3 weeks because of a niggling calf injury so thought total rest would give me fresh legs for the day.

Six Lancaster and Morecambe athletes took part in the Darwen Heritage Half Marathon on Sunday 3rd April 2016.

The day started with Ben visiting Heysham St. Peters Primary school for a morning assembly, about the 401 challenge, his reasons for doing it and the shear scale of the challenge in numbers such as the length of the day’s marathon being 786 times around their playground and the total mileage for the challenge being over 10,500 miles or Morecambe to Sydney.

Lancaster and Morecambe Athletics Club runners Carole and David Wilkinson celebrated their 33rd Wedding Anniversary in Paphos, Cyprus.

Being a fan of this series of trail races the dirty double was something I’d always wanted to try – but due to other commitments I’ve never been able to fit both in. For those of you who don’t know it consists of a 15K trial race round Helvelyn on the Saturday and the Sunday it’s a 14K. Both race start from Glenridding – but the Sunday one – starts with cruise to the start on opposite side of the lake before basically you run round the southern end of the lake back to Glenridding.

August had loomed up pretty quickly on my race calendar, and it's fair to say the Prudent Riverside 10 had crept up on me.

Lancaster & Morecambe AC carried on their winning ways at the weekend with a storming performance at the Manchester Terry Nortley 2 miles Road Relay.

It was a memorable day for Lancaster and Morecambe Athletics Club at the Brathay Windermere Marathon in Ambleside.

Two LMAC members help to bring in the Ladies Team Trophy at the Keswick to Barrow (K2B) Walk by setting a new course record of 8 hours 24 minutes on Saturday 9 May.

Some fantastic results from seniors over last 7 days or so - so here's a quick summary.......

So the big day Sunday April 12th the 39th Paris Marathon and what a day it was to be.

Lancaster & Morecambe AC handed debuts to 10 athletes yesterday at the NoEAA 12 stage road relay at Sefton Park, Liverpool

a strong performance from Lancaster runners at this event in Nelson

so this weekend was a busy weekend for the seniors ....

Tony Jewitt had a great week-end double, running both Stanley Park 10ks on Saurday and Sunday.
