Liverpool and District XC Championships 2014

In a weekend packed full of events it was looking doubtful that we may be able to field a complete team for the 2014 Liverpool and District XC Championships at Clarkes Gardens but the senior runners did not disappoint and came together to retain the title for another year, 38 places clear of 2nd place.

Richie Burney took the title for the first time, to add to his Merseyside title this year, which helped secure another championship win for the club who are now unbeaten since 2001.

1st – Richard Burney – 33:46
2nd – John McCole – 34:00
6th – James McNally – 35:22
7th – Ian Lawton – 35:27
10th – Mark Keeley – 36:04
16th – Callum Grant – 37:12

In the female race (run as one race with the men), Rachael Burns ran out clear winner in a time of 41:29. Second place was Charlotte Wilson in 43:08 and Michelle Murphy came 5th in 47:46.

Southport Mad Dog 10K

The 4th running of the popular Mad Dog 10K took place on Sunday in Southport. The strong winds made it very tough in a race normally popular for those chasing PB times – the race is usually won in 31/32 minutes but first place on Sunday was 37:05 which is a good reflection of the conditions.

5th – Carl Mountain – 38:13
