Road Runners Training
Lancaster & Morecambe AC Junior cross country runners, headed off to Witton Park, Blackburn for the County XC Championships, we knew the course would be muddy it normally is, but we had hoped the rain would hold off, which it did for the most part with the odd very cold shower to remind us it was January, and the wind made its presence known during the races, but despite this we came away with 3 County Champions.
A pleasant, slightly cloudy morning greeted runners at the Lancaster & Morecambe Athletic Club’s annual Festive 4k Fun Run on the morning of Friday December 27th.

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…………
