Perfect weather conditions greeted the runners in Sunday’s half marathon on the scenic but tough course around the lanes near Garstang.

Marian Hesketh had a good run to finish 2nd woman overall in 1.38.32 and Helen Boyer showed good form in advance of the forthcoming Chester marathon to clock a PB of 2.04.19 despite the hilly course. She was encouraged along the way by Michael Brennand, who ran 2.04.19. Victoria Cowling was running her first half marathon and found it hard going, but she stuck to her task and finished in 2.14.27.

Sainsbury's School Games, Manchester - Friday 5th September 2014
Ed smashes through the 60 metre barrier
Preston Harriers’ 15 year old hammer thrower Edward Jeans smashed his lifetime best by nearly 3 metres to record a distance of 61.62 metres and a silver medal while representing the North West in the Sainsbury's School Games at Manchester catapulting him to 5th best in the country. In his series of 6 throws, he threw 3 times over 61metres, this being the first time he has thrown over 60 metres in his life. Harriers’ talented pole vaulter Jessica Swannack also had a brilliant day, and equalled her personal best to win a bronze medal with a height of 3.50 metres only failing to win the silver on countback. Chris Durney (the third Harrier in the North West team) just missed a medal, finishing a close 4th in the 1500 metres with a time of 4:08.35, his 4th quickest time for the distance.
Leyland Inter-Club - Wednesday 3rd September 2014
The final road inter-club of 2014, hosted by Red Rose Runners, took place last week on a perfect evening for running. The course was in and around Worden Park, and was 4 miles in length. Preston Harriers triumphed again in the Open event, making it six wins from six in the series. However, Rob Affleck was beaten into 2nd place by Rob Danson of Wesham – both having good runs and well clear of third place. Harriers posted six runners in the top fifteen places. The ladies were third on the night, and 3rd overall for the season. Harriers retained the Veterans award too, with another six wins from six.
