Despite the soggy conditions the number of young children who came out to run this morning was just brilliant.
Well Done to all of you!
A big thankyou to all the Volunteers who gave up their Sunday Morning to make the event Possible and, off course, the Parents and Teachers for their support. Also, thankyou to all the Staff at Park View 4U for allowing us to use their fantastic facility.
The wind was certainly blowing at Blackburn on Saturday but it didn’t deter nine hardy Lytham Athletes from turning out for the penultimate Mid Lancs Cross Country League meeting at the town’s Witton Park. The U11′s 1.9K race was not set round one of the most imaginative courses and consisted of 4 small laps of a flat field. In the Girls race Hollie Winstanley was first back in 7th (10:57) followed by Rosie Taylor 17th in 11:43. Rebecca Tate had a superb run to finish 19th in 11:53 and then came Georgia Norman who was 29th in 12:38 and not far behind her was Olivia Aberra in 35th (12:55). Three U11 boys represented the club and all of them gave good accounts of themselves. Gregor Anderson finished 10th in 10:02, Simon Holt was 17th in 10:16 and Harry Booth 29th in 11:12. Chloe Norman was the clubs only U13 girl to run and the course for her race was a bit more challenging with a trip over the parks infamous saucer. She ran a great race to finish 28th in 11:17.
The venue for the February Mid Lancs Cross Country meeting will now be Witton Park, Blackburn.
The sunshine at Barrow gave the appearance of a pleasant winter’s day but conditions underfoot for the 3rd race of the Mid Lancs League Cross Country series of races told a different story. The preceding weeks of wet weather had ensured the going would be heavy throughout a large part of the course. Despite this being one of the more remote venues there was a magnificent turnout of thirteen Lytham juniors and, without exception, their willingness to travel was rewarded with excellent performances. First off was the U11 girls and Hollie Winstanley was first back across the line finishing 5th in 7:44. Rosie Taylor was next back finishing 11th in 8:29 and just two seconds behind her in 12th was Rebecca Tate. Georgia Norman and Olivia Aberra were in a race of their own throughout the 2K course and there was nothing between them on the line although the judges gave 16th to Georgia and 17th to Olivia with the same time of 9:14.
The U11 boys were next and they too followed the same 2K course as the girls. Gregor Anderson, still very new to cross country racing, showed great composure with a fast second half which earned him 4th place in 6:59. Louis Eunson running only his second cross country race ran superbly to finish 8th in 7:23 and not far behind him was Farron O’Higgins 12th in 7:34 and Simon Holt 13th in 7:36. Cade Anderson, another newcomer, finished 16th in 7:47 and next back was Harry Booth who was 19th in 8:07 and a much improved performance from Tobias Rogerson earned him 27th in 9:08.
Chloe Norman was the club’s only U13 girl to run and she ran a very well paced race over the 2.5k course to finish 14th in 11:12.
Lytham St Annes Road Runners Club fast growing junior section was well represented at the Mid Lancs League Cross Country meeting staged on Wilson Fields in Hyndburn. The preceding weeks’ rain made for some very muddy sections on the course and this coupled with a challenging route provided a true cross country test for all age groups. In the U11girls race Hollie Winstanley got off to as great start with the lead group and battled within that group for the remainder of the race to finish 7th in 9:51. Rosie Taylor was next Lytham runner home in 15th (10:22) followed by Rebecca Tate in 25th (11:21) and the Georgia Norman 31st (12.00) with Olivia Aberra close on her heals in 32nd (12:09). In the U11boys race Gregor Anderson, running his first cross country race for the club, ran superbly to finish 3rd in 8:31 and the fast improving Farron O’Higgins was next back in 17th (8:58) and then Archie Dowds 19th (9:11), Simon Holt 20th (9:12), Will Andrews 27th (9:28), Cade Anderson 34th (9:58) and Tobias Rogerson 49th (11:19). Chloe Norman was the only Lytham Girl in the U13G race and she again produced a good performance to finish 35th in 12:25.
