It was the Windermere Triathlon on Sunday with a strong Harriers entry, underlining the growing interest in triathlon within the club. Kevin Hunt led the Harriers charge home with a very impressive 2:39:09 for the tough but scenic event which combines a 1500m swim, 43k Bike and 10k run. Next to finish, under a minute behind, was the ever impressive Nichola Jackson in 2:39:53 with Stephen Needham (2:56:19) William Johnstone (2:59:52) Steve Townhill (3:00:57) Chris Wales (3:09:02) and Michael Brennand ( 3:17:01) all rising to the lakeland challenge.

Lostock Hall Carnival 5k road race - Saturday 4th July 2015
Saturday 4th July saw a new race on the Harriers calendar with the inaugural running of the Lostock Hall Carnival 5k. The course was billed as fast and flat and as it was held on closed roads just before the carnival procession, there was a large crowd to cheer the runners on. David Rigby promised to put in a fast time to mark the race’s debut and duly delivered, winning in 15:24 with fellow Harriers Andy Benson ( 16:23) and Jason Parker (16:47) rounding out the top three. David Cairns (18:42) David Watson ( 18:54) Stephen Bonsu ( 19:19) Russell Codd (19:32) and Lewis Darwen (20:39) also performed strongly for the men’s team. Helen Boyer continued a strong run of recent performances, being first Harrier lady home with a new PB of 26:56 with Adela Nuttall ( 27:59) and Sue Wickham (30:52) completing the Proud Harriers team.
Heptonstall Fell Race - Saturday 4th July 2015
The Heptonstall fell race is part of a traditional village festival. The route from the hilltop village plunges deep into a neighbouring valley before a climb up and the route covers a varied mix of terrain over its 9.5k. Sam Swindells was a good 29th in 61.40 and Ambi Tipping 8th lady overall in 73.00.
Penny Lane 10k – Sunday 28th June 2015
A good turnout of Harriers made the trip to Liverpool to return to what, in a short time, has become a favourite race. The event is almost a complete out and back course on Otterspool Promenade alongside the River Mersey waterfront. However, a strong headwind coming straight down the River for the return to the Police Club on Riversdale Road saw runners having to work so hard that their pace was almost impossible to maintain.

The Blackburn Harriers-hosted Witton Park trail relays saw some competitive running on a still and dry evening. The race is of three legs, each of 3.65k run over a hilly and undulating course, with scope for some fast descents. Handovers took place in front of an appreciative crowd and the Preston Harriers ladies team finished third ladies team on the night. Ambi Tipping led off, with Jenny Parker on leg 2. Charlotte Rawcliffe ran a great third leg despite a heavy cold and held the team’s placing.
