Bunny Run Relay 22nd April
This three man relay attracted over 100 teams many in fancy dress. We fielded two over sixty five teams (how many clubs can say that). The course was just under 2 miles with two testing climbs and some good running just outside of Howarth. The baton was a fresh egg which had to be intact at the change overs and the race was started with a egg thrown by Dave Woodhead smashing to the ground setting off 106 teams. Our A team team of O.A.P.s finished in 61st with Tony Hesketh recording the fastest time 12.55, Jim Leyland ran 15.02 and Pete Bland ran well for 14.14. Our other team finished 101st with Alan Blinkhorn running the fastest leg on second 16.40 after Pete Scott handed over after running 18.21 on the first leg and the team was brought home by captain on the night Ed Swift with a time of 19.52.
