51st Parbold Hill Race

Thanks to Mark Bleasdale for the summary from yesterday’s Parbold hill race.

Some strong performances at the wet and windy 51st Parbold Hill race.

Kevin Usher stormed to a 12th place winning the V55 cat and beating most of the other vet categories too.

Pre race favourite Sam Carr had to settle for 18th place just a second ahead of Chloe Leather who missed the first women prize by a few seconds.

In the same race back in 1972 there were 104 runners, all male and only 14 vet runners! By contrast yesterday’s race had over 400 finishers, over 25% were women and over 75% on the whole field were veteran runners!
