Another busy week of running

Starting with the long-awaited return of The Ramathon, several club members ran in, or assisted with this race. All results are listed as usual, but top honours go to Alan Kay, the organisers brother, who clocked a superb sub-1.19 in the heat for 11th place.

Back-to-back league races on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Booth's and Notts AAA's also saw top performances by LERC members.

On Tuesday night, 22 club runners contested the 3rd fixture at Denby. Mark Boot lead the way with an excellent 7th spot, with Sarah Priestley being he first lady home for the club. On the night, the men's team were 5th, and are 4th after 3 races. LERC are 7th club overall in the combined table.

On Wednesday, at Newstead Abbey, a new venue although not unfamiliar territory, 16 club members ran in the 3rd Notts AAA race, a 5 mile route based on the NAD course. Andy Peat, still turning out for the club, although now 1st claim for Birchfield Harriers, faced down some cricket-style sledging from his opposition to win the senior men's race in magnificent style. No finer way to make your point Andy! Lindsay Smith was first LERC lady in 22nd place.

Well done also to those who turned out to both races.
