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.
Thanks to Helen Elleker for the photos and don’t forget her President’s Appeal
NEXT RACE : THE BARNARD TROPHY, JULY 6 AT SUTTON MACCLESFIELD
