The gentle weather and favourable terrain made it another good weekend for runners in the Lytham Windmill 10k.

Uber Cirelli, of BWF, certainly found the going to his liking, clocking his best time, 37mins, 31secs, to take 12th place. Trevor Uttley also had a good run finishing 15th in 37.39.

One or two stalwarts headed across to Bolton for the latest Red Rose League Cross country fixture.

Guesting in the Umder-11 boys, George Robinson was fourth in 7.07 – just a few seconds behind the winner Ben Forrest (Bury).

Hannah Eadie was seventh in the girl race in 7.38, also just a few seconds behind the leading runners.

In the Under-15 category, Alisha Johnson (pictured left) was well to the fore, finishing third in 16.56, behind two athletes from Moston AC.

The other BWF representative, Imogen Pierce, took fourth place in the Under-17 ladies’ race, in 24.24.

At the annual BWF awards ceremony, international thrower Carl Myerscough was again named as the outstanding athlete of the year, with the promising Luke Minns and Lydia Critchley the runners-up.

Leading veteran Caroline Betmead and the club’s outstanding road runner Stuart Robinson also claimed achievement awards, while Tanya Wright and Norman Greenwood deservedly took the Cocker Trophy for turning out regardless.

Junior awards went to Daniel Quarmby, Natasha Johnston, Oliver Hopkins, Kate Lawler, Jake Walley, Annie Bradshaw, Kieran Chell, Hannah Maskill and Oliver Tomlinson.

Katrina Kelly, who excels in junior throwing events, Peter Bridge, Sophie Riley and the determined Katy Wyper were all winners, as were tough multi-eventer Beth Towers and fell running champ Gary Johnston.
