2018 Alsager 5 mile Race Report

After a rainy Saturday the skies cleared to give a sunny, calm and cool day for the running of the fast and flat Alsager 5 mile race. These were ideal conditions for some fast times and the 27 Harriers that took part did all they could to smash some PB’s. Carrying on from most of his other recent races one of our “younger” runners, Harry Newton, easily scooped up the V80 prize!

For the male Harriers Billy Hicks (29:08) continued his strong early season form leading all Harriers and picking up a PB for 5 miles. Billy was closely followed by Ewan Edmondson (29:23) who also bagged a PB for 5 miles. James Perry (30:17) was the third male Harrier to finish just holding off Paul Sharp (30:23) at the finish.

For the female Harriers Sian Gulliver (35:33) led the way and gaining a PB in the process. Kathryn Hutchinson (36:39) was second female Harrier also setting a PB time for 5 miles. Catharine Crossley (37:57) was third over the line with yet another PB broken.

There were many more excellent times and PB’s had by the remaining Harriers whose times are listed below. Full results can be found at the following link:
