With a break in the road relays schedule it was a quiet week for races this week.

Wirral Multi Terrain Series – Race 4

The popular Wirral Multi Terrain series concluded on Tuesday with the final race round Arrowe Park. Laura Quine again took first place with a time of 27:47. Being the only female Harrier there on the night we didn’t have enough for a ladies team. Paul Quine was the first male athlete home in 17th place with a time of 26:32 and with 6 runners present we managed to field a full team which finished in 17th place.

Full race results are available HERE.
