Lancashire prominent at the BMAF 5k in Horwich

Once again Fred Pearce was uppermost in our thoughts as we arrived for the annual BMAF 5k championships at a cool yet bright Horwich. It didn’t seem right that Fred wasn’t there, welcoming us as he busied himself making sure everything was in order. Thankfully Adrian Edwards, a tower of strength, and Trevor McDermot supported by the experienced hands of Eric and Pam Horwill, ensured that as ever things ran smoothly.

Before the race commenced Adrian led a moving tribute to and a minute’s silence in memory of Fred. Patrick Murphy and Ian Richards dominated the Men’s Race from the off as did Carolyn Derbyshire in the Women’s equivalent. Our club amassed a haul of medals as you can see below.

On your marks!
LWC also won the two club team trophies on offer.
