15km, 900m

Position Name Time
4 Lawrence Eccles 78:32
133 Tony Man 127:43
134 Gill Darby 127:43

Free cake and drink at the finish plus a USB cup warmer for the prize winners and anybody else who wanted one (I did not see anybody take one). In good fell race fashion a check-point moved during the race and another was in the wrong place. The proper race report is at:

Carrieres By Night
8th November
21km 400m ascent

12th Lawrence Eccles 01:32:05
364th Cristina Puccini 02:18:01

The race started at twilight, which quickly turned to darkness as we entered into the woods. I should point out that Cristina sprained her ankle to detract attention from my 12th place and explain why she never won the women's race. Cake, fruit, water and mulled wine was available at the finish.

Sandgrounder Southport 10K

Paul Doyle 62 46.05 M50/7 SB

Kevin Mooney 170 57.11 M/76

216 runners took part in almost surreal, November, Spring-like weather. Ideal racing conditions on a fast, relatively flat course.
I put my SB time down in part to the PLS Thursday night "hills" session paying dividends!

Benidorm Half Marathon 23rd November

Lyndon Easthope 1.35.40
John Bampton 1.36.46
Keith Boyle 1.59.32
Eunice Nopondo 2.07.51
Tommy Gates 2.22.29

Another superbly organised Benidorm Half, excellent value for money. Ideal running conditions, slightly overcast. Tough course with an incline at 1 and a half miles and an energy sapping uphill section from about seven til eight and a half miles. Tommy was struggling with injury from halfway but dug in and managed to complete the course.
Great weekend away with almost thirty runners from PLS, Knowsley Harriers, Liverpool Running Club and Mossley Hill completing the Half or 10k.
My fifth year on the trot and think I might just do it all again next year!

Re: November Results & Race Report

Wesham 10K

Paul Doyle 170. M50/14. 47.13

Michael Roberts 305. M55/27. 54.41

408 runners took part in a race almost identical to the Lea Town 10K; rural, undulating fast course. Ran in perfect conditions: clear, extremely mild for the end of November & pleasant warm sunshine. Well marshalled from very supportive Wesham marshalls.

Sat 29th November

131. Martin Swensson 33:06

Doubled up as the L&D 2nd race. Winner home in 29:26! Surprisingly tough twisting course, but very grateful for the great PLS support throughout (you know who you are!)

Re: November Results & Race Report

29.11.14 - Hare & Hounds 5 mile race Glasgow

127 David Cain 35:17
185 Susan Cain 43:27

210 runners.

This was a 2 lap hilly race (even by Cumbrian standards). It was quite rough under foot in a lot of places and you had to go fast past the car wash otherwise you got a free shower!
