At the final inter club fixture of the season held at Worden Park and hosted by Red Rose, Andrew Prendegast led the Red Rose team home with 6 minute pace in 24.01. Ben Donoghue judged his race well to finish strongly in 24.17 outpacing Joe Swarbrick who finished in 24.20. Ken Addison was second V50 in 24.31. Steve Whitney showed good form finishing in 24.54 with Claire Bunce third lady in 25.14.

Geoff Haworth ran 27.48 and counted as third Red Rose V50 to help the club take 3rd place for the series. Barry Wheeler finished in 28.07 whilst the young Liam ran really well for 30.44. John Wiseman and Mike Jeffryes completed the team effort finishing in 31.25 and 35.50.

Debbie Kirkman did the Yorkshireman Off Road Marathon over in Haworth in 23 degree heat. She finished 79th out of 153 runners, as well as many ‘pairs’, in 5:11:15, over 20 mins faster than her previous best on that course.

The club had a great turn out for the Preston Guild torchlight procession, complete with flaming torches and staged races.
