Lee Parrington is one of our runners based in Carnforth and he made the shortish trip to Birkrigg in the South Lakes, for this Kendal Winter League Race. These races are similar to those organised by BOFRA in the summer and are often straightforward out and back races.  This one was straight to the trig  and back.  Former British Champ Tom Addison led the field home in 19.59. Lee had a good solid run finishing 9th in a time of 22.36.

Tom Corrigan and Chris Singleton have both been selected to run for Lancashire  in the inter counties cross country championships on March 12th.  Tom has improved beyond all recognition in this last year and has been rewarded for his hard work after his 16th place finish at the Lancashire Championships. Chris Singleton has had a great week following his international ultra vest.  He now has his second call up for Lancashire after representing the county on the fells last year.

This is a 6K run, a 16K Mountain Bike and then another 6K run.  Three Barlickers took part.

Chris Singleton last year stepped up to the Ultra distances and did so with distinction winning 2 races, the first being his 1st ever ultra outing at Howarth Hobble. As well as competing on the road where he set the club record for the marathon and cross country, picking up his first Lancashire vest, he has added an England vest to his collection. He has been called up to run in the Anglo Celtic Plate, which is a race run over either 50k or 100k. It's a great achievement and well deserved for his hard work and dedication to his sport. It's even more impressive when you realise he has 3 young children, as well as having a very good athlete for a wife in Christina Singleton who runs for Trawden AC.

Sam Wadsworth was our only representative in this race and he reported on it as follows:

In a bid to find a race this weekend, I ventured to Skelmersdale for the Ashurst Beacon Fell Race.  It's an out and back race which starts at the top of the main hill, drops down into a valley, climbs up the other side before looping back and finishing with a long climb (just where you need it the least). The race starts on  a steep road descent and Southport's Ben Johnson, looking like a  Lancashire version of Tom Adams, set off at a blistering pace making it seem like the result was a foregone conclusion.  Halfway down the hill, the race switches onto tracks and other than some very muddy fields remained on these throughout.  Fearing that I'd failed to leave enough in the tank for the climb at the end, I was worried about loosing positions towards the end as I could hear someone chasing me most of the way round.  Luckily I managed to hold off the runner, who also struggled with the final climb and finished in 6th.   Ben Johnson took first place, through on speaking to him afterwards, his win was not quite as comfortable or assured as it may have initially appeared, having lost the lead part of the way round.

The race was very well organised and marshalled with the results printed off before some people had managed to get served at the bar, (the bar service was a little slow tho).  Really stiff legs caused by the steep road decent  makes it difficult to recommend an ideal shoe but Mudclaws are definitely not the way forward should anyone chose to do this race next year.

Because of the weather, this year the race was run over The Stoop course.

The winner was Tom Adams in 31:14.  Sam Wadsworth, on his first solo run out for quite some time finished just outside the top ten and Andy Berry also had a good run, despite his cracking run in the cross country yesterday, finished just outside the top twenty.
