Burnley Cross Country – Saturday 10th January 2015
Heavy rain in the days leading up to the Mid-Lancs cross country league fixture at old favourite, Towneley Park, in Burnley had surprisingly only resulted in a few areas of boggy ground last Saturday. The finish area was however close by a heavily waterlogged area which allowed runners to clean their spikes and shoes after the races!
