YDL – Upper Age Group

On Sunday we went into our 3rd match of the YDL Upper Age group at Wavertree. We were already top of the league but slightly apprehensive due to many gaps especially in middle distance events.

Early on we were floating between 3rd and 4th place. At the end of the day, with some personal best performances, we won! Thanks to all who competed, managed, officiated and ran the shop.

Penny Lane Striders 10K

There was a decent turnout at the Penny Lane Striders 10K which was held down on Otterspool on Sunday. The runners ran out along the promenade before turning into a strong headwind to head for home.

Haccalu Hundeessaa won the race in 32:28 with Ian Lawton in 2nd place in 33:27. The provisional results have placed the Liverpool Harriers team in 3rd place, but they have omitted Ian from the scoring and so we should take the win once corrected.

Full results are available HERE.
