There were more age-category wins for Radcliffe AC, in a racing week that took members all over.

Last weekend was the fifth round of the Run The Moors series of fell races at the Knowl Hill Fell Race. This challenging six-mile route includes ‘an all-fours scramble up the moors’ to reach the summit of Knowl Hill, before a fast and technical descent back along the reservoirs.

Mark Garner was first down the hill for the club in a time of 1hr 5mins 23secs, followed by Neil Greenhalgh in 1:10:36, Katherine Davies, who came first in her age category with a time of 1:15:54, Karen Doherty (1:18:35) and Ethan Malone (1:24:36).

Also on the fells last week, Ian Swan represented Radcliffe at the Leo Pollard Memorial Fell Race on Thursday night - a 10km route that takes in Rivington Pike, Two Lads and Winter Hill and includes a total of 1,280 feet of elevation.

Despite falling in a bog midway through this challenging moorland race, Swan came 11th overall in a time of 53:44.

It was a yellow and black takeover at the Dave Telford Dunham Massey 5k in midweek, with a total of 16 representing the club. Gary Adkins was first home for Radcliffe in 18:15, also finishing fourth in his age category (M40) and 23rd overall. Also finishing the 5km race in that aspirational sub-20 minutes zone was Andrew O’Donnell, a runner who is going from strength to strength, with a new personal best of 19:30. Sheila Jones was the first female runner over the line for Radcliffe in a time of 23:23 - a result that also saw her finish first in her age category (F65).

Other results: Dominic Parry 21:04, Ethan Malone 23:47, Paul Stevens 24:48, Brennan Tighe 25:06, Katherine Biddle 25:13, Karen Doherty 26:12, Laura Aiken 27:42, Sarah Wilson 28:05, Steve Crowe 28:53, Caroline Malone 30:42, Bev Quinton 36:57, Iain Harris 37:30, Michael Scott 39:44.

Elsewhere, Laura Aiken completed her first official half-marathon last weekend at the Lakeland Trails Coniston Half. She finished the ‘bumpy’ scenic route in a time of 2:52:51.

A group of Radcliffers were on the tour bus to Morecambe at the weekend for a parkrun extravaganza, which saw some significant milestones being met. Dave Rushton was there for his 100th parkrun and Sara Parry for her 200th.
