Lancaster 5k

Getting faster in Lancaster

Two DRC members made the trip South to take part in the Lancaster 5k on Saturday evening...

 

They were still boiling their water in Lancashire last Saturday. Similarly, Ian Liffen, Mhairi Duff and her husband Raymond were seeking to turn up the heat in the Lancaster 5K and come away with some fast times. The race is part of the summer series of 5K's held between May and September, which are run on the last Saturday of the month. A fast out and back course, which starts and finishes at the Salt Ayre running track and follows the River Lune along a flat, quiet cycle path, the race offers excellent PB potential.

Ian set off rather swiftly going through the first mile in 5:14. He eased back and maintained a solid pace to record a time of 16:48 for 14th place in a deep field of 137. This was an encouraging return to form after a frustrating summer of minor niggling injuries.

Mhairi ran strongly throughout and recorded an excellent 17:24, which improved her own club record by 8 seconds. Finishing 2nd female and rewarded with a bottle of wine, Mhairi's time currently ranks her as 12th woman in Scotland at the distance. Hampered by injuries in the recent past, there will hopefully be more PB's on the horizon for Mhairi and the opportunity to fulfil her undoubted running potential. (Raymond finished in 37th and had perhaps the run of the night as he reduced his PB by 27 seconds to 18:18.)

All three were delighted with their performances and were using the race as a sharpener for the Scottish Championships 10K in Stirling in a fortnight.
