In temperatures of Minus 4’C the beautiful setting of Witton Park attracted the Lancashire Athletic Association Championships. The usual hardy Lancashire association felt the course was safe enough and it didn’t prevent a good field turning out on the day.
Nathan Townsend was our only U13’s runner and was looking for a good finish against his arch rivals. In these conditions anything could happen, iced over rough terrain was being covered by the recent snow fall making the landscape stunning but unpredictable under foot. In recent Mid Lancs 14th has been his best so to come in 10th was very satisfactory for himself today. All runners found it difficult and some not finishing proving the course as difficult as was feared.
