Summer lovin’ happened so fast…

but not nearly as fast as our runners! Even in the midst of the holiday season, plenty of you are out and about racing hard. There’s been a range of gala fell racing, half marathons, parkrun tourism and new course records. Summer holidays are just another reason to get out and run for Clayton-le-Moors Harriers!

WEDNESDAY 16 AUGUST

GOLF BALL FELL RACE

A dozen Clayton Harriers took part in the Golf Ball fell race, the latest in the summer series of fell races organised by Rossendale Harriers. This race takes runners on a 5 mile route with 900ft of ascent passing the landmark golf ball (which I think is a weather station).

Peter Coates was our first finisher in 12th place overall. Carol Life was our sole lady runner and she finished in 123rd place.
