January Virtual 5km and Sam Shoebottom 10km

Many members will have had trouble finding an ice-less road on which to do their January Virtual 5 kilometres. However, Dave Evans tells me the snow is disappearing from the Lakes so all should now be well. Forward your clockings to me at tonymtaylor@gmail.com by midnight, Tuesday, January 31st. Remember this virtual race counts in the annual handicap competition.

Hot on the heels of this deadline we will be meeting and competing in the flesh at Chorley for the rearranged Sam Shoebottom 10-kilometres race on Saturday, February 4th. The event will start at 1.00 p.m. As usual it will be very helpful if you could let Dave Evans at dave.evans08@hotmail.co. if you are coming and in what capacity. With a bit of luck and an unexpectedly cheap flight I might make it

St Peter’s Church Hall, Harpers Lane, PR6 0HP.


In recent weeks we have paid tribute on our site to two stalwarts of our sport, Ray Middleton and Dave Boxall, Both our posts now contain new material. Graham Young from the Isle of Man offers a fascinating glimpse into the past world of European and British Postal race walking, whilst there is more detail on Dave Boxall’s 100 miles achievements.
