Meerbrook 15K 2017 Race Report

On Saturday 17 Macc Harriers took on the challenging Meerbrook 15K with its two significant climbs. With the race also incorporating a County Challenge, with two Harriers running for Cheshire, it made for some excellent times. As with some other recent races it was actually our veteran runners who came away with some prizes.

For the men Marker Walker (56:20 and 14th place) and Scott Wilson (59:17 and 26th place) were the first two Harriers and ran for the Cheshire team. Unfortunately, it was Staffordshire who took the Male County prize. Chris Goodfellow (1:03:18) was third male Harrier over the line.

For the women Lindsay Purdie (1:17:09) was first over the line. While not on the official results because of chip issues Joanna Miles (1:17:54) did run the race and came just in behind Lindsay. Third female Harrier was Sally Hopkin (1:19:36). The Cheshire women did pick up the County prize led by Diane McVey from Wilmslow who placed first woman.

Veteran prizes were picked up by Neil Gunn (1:11:12) for V55, his second prize this month, and Barry Blythe (1:15:30) for V70.
