National Cross Country Championships

Last weekend  The Saucony English Cross Country Championships were held at Bolesworth Castle, near Tattenhall, Chester.

The full set of results can be found here where LPS had 3 of the 1473 athletes running, Thomas Harkin, Tom Mattack and Chris Pedder, all of whom completed the gruelling 12k race.

Thomas Harkin was our 1st finisher in 48:06 with Tom Mattack just behind in 48:25. Chris Pedder finalised the LPS contingent under the hour mark in 57:12.  Well done to all 3 athletes.

The Maltese Falcon

Mark Hudson, our very own Humphrey Bogart took on the Malta half marathon last weekend.  A race he’s run that often there’ll be a trophy named after him soon.  It was definitely warmer than the Chester Cross Country, Mark finished 201st out of circa 2000 runners in a really decent 1:36.43.  A little bit of LPS nostalgia aligned to the race as Tony O’Brien ran it in 1997, finishing 1st in 1:06.14.
