From Absent Friends To Liversedge

A couple of races at the weekend saw Ian Codling and Graham Robinson at the friendly Absent Friends 5 mile trail race at Cowpen Bewerley Country Park near Billingham.  182 runners finished the mainly flat course over woodland trails and Graham Robinson had another good run to come 34th in 36.56 with Ian Codling 144th in 50.49.

Paul Atkinson and Alan Harman had an altogether tougher race, the Liversedge Half Marathon, renowned for its hills!  It was an overcast morning, ideal for running and Paul Atkinson, running well as usual, came 72nd in 1.33.28 with Alan Harman 314th in 1.56.21.
