Liverpool Half Marathon | Heaton parkrun | Liverpool Princes parkrun | Midgley Moor Fell Race

Lauren Jeska stepped up her London Marathon training with first place at the Liverpool Half Marathon on Sunday.

After a strong start, Liverpool Harrier Jenny Clague took an early lead in the ladies race buoyed on by local support.

Despite not feeling on top form, Lauren put in a strong finish to move ahead with just over a mile to go, and maintained her pace to cross the line 30 seconds ahead in a time of 1:19:03.

Todmorden’s second representative in the race was Joanne Scholfield who completed the course in 1:55:19.

On Saturday, Martin Stork recorded 18:04 to win the weekly Heaton Park 5k parkrun, whilst Richard Butterwick and Myra Wells also travelled to Liverpool for the inaugural Princes Parkrun.

Richard covered the distance in 19:25 for 10th place overall, with Myra 12th lady.

Closer to home five Harriers took on the Midgley Moor Fell Race with Ben Crowther completing the course in 16th place, followed by Dave Collins in 26th and Clive Greatorex in 32nd place.

Lucy Hobbs finished 3rd lady with Hatty Nylon 4th; on a day when had any other ladies turned out they would surely have won the team prize.
