Langley 7 2017

Hi all, and thanks to everyone once again for supporting our annual jaunt in whatever way, running, helping, marshalling, baking, biking, serving beer, tea, cakes, sweeping, photographing, first responding, and several others !

We had 286 finishers, (including 83 from Macc Harriers which must be some sort of record), but despite your best efforts didn't run out of cake, beer or malt loaf. The rain held off, more or less, and everyone seemed to come back in one piece.

Results are here http://macclesfield-harriers.co.uk/images/langley72017results.xls  . Congratulations to our winners Diane and Martin, all the other prize winners, and everyone else who ran. Please let us have any feedback, good or bad ! 

Bryan's photos will be here http://www.racephotos.org.uk/

Lost property, we found a pair of black gloves on the course, and a thing that looks like it goes in your ear and talks to a bluetooth or something (you can tell I'm an IT specialist): if either are yours let me know. We also found one of last year's goody bags in the hall but the less said about that the better, the malt loaf in it was past its best.

We've raised £3830 for the Rossendale Trust, so once again, many thanks.

Cheers Julian and all the team at Macc Harriers.

A couple of pictures from the day: thanks to Kath Turner for the second one.
