Been a while since I posted note to self update more often !! Ok Last weekend was the Alsager 5 one of if not the fastest five in the country assume standard as always and a fantastic standard of runners as always with Jack Martin of Stockport Harriers taking the spoils. Fantastically organised by Ken Rushton as always one for your diary for next year guys caters for all standards of runners see the Alsager site for more details etc
Today was the first running of the Walton Wobble 10k a new race at Stafford put on my Craig Baxter and his team a great race although a very cold morning but this did not put off the many runners entering the race another sold out event a sign of the times! Am sure this event will go from Strength to Strength!!
When i ran always struggled with a marathon last 3-4 miles were awful so when i was asked to photograph 5in 5 hell of a hill bolton hill marathon I thought these guys are crazy 5 marathons five days 6 laps each up the RIvington Pike. How wrong could i be! the event one of the best events I've been to in ages great people supporting each other organisation fantastic and it s just got a great buzz about it can't wait for next year!
So as well as this we had Windmill 10k another one of my favourites put on by a great Fylde coast running team who put on some fantastic running events in the Blackpool area throughout the year and who can't resist a trip to Blackpool?. Nearly a 1000 runners completed the event and pb's all over on this fast flat course in Lytham st annes,
