Debbie Campbell continued her good form with an emphatic victory in the Ashurst Beacon Hill Race on the 12th of January.
Finishing 24th in a classy field she was the second LPS athlete home. Only Ian Roberts in 6th place managing to get the better of her on this off road hilly course, the type which Debbie thrives on. Her winning margin of almost four minutes underlines her current form and indicates hopefully more to come from her in the coming months.
It was a good day all round for LPS at Ashurst with ten club members taking part in this popular event. We also picked up a couple of category wins with Sam Car taking the under 23s prize, Chris Pedder taking the V/60 and the club picking up the team prize.
Ian Roberts brought his family along to support him and he didn’t disappoint them with a fine run (41.22) in 6th place, Debbie was next (45.24) in 24th place. The evergreen Chris Pedder V/60 (46.43) had an excellent run in 32 place he was followed by Shaun Lea (47.30) in 38th. Sam Carr U/23 (47.41) in 40th managed to hold off John Halson V/55 in 42nd place (47.48) after a race long battle. Robbie Wood V/60 (50.36) in 60th faded badly during the final climb but just held off fast finishing Mark Hudson (50.53) V/55 in 63rd place. Garry Hinds was 114th in (62.51) with Richie Webster V/70 coming home in 132 place in (67.23)
