Eleven Harriers made the trip down to Kingsley to complete in the high-class Mid-Cheshire 5k. A race which featured several international level athletes and has a reputation for fast times. A break in the rain and cooler temperature presented the runners with good racing conditions which saw a runner PBs recorded on the day. Young Joe Monk was the first of the Preston men to cross the line, coming home in a fantastic PB time of 15:12 to take 24th on the day. The equally young Wes Wilkinson was next in a PB of 16:30, followed by the not so young Simon Collins who recorded a PB of 17:19.  Under 15 junior Scarlett Allison was the first of the harrier women to cross the finish line, in PB time of 23:26 finishing 12th in the women’s under 21 category. Next woman home was Julie Tyrer who recorded a big PB to finish in a time of 24:26, followed by Alex Proffitt who also ran a PB time to cross the line in 29:33.
Other Harriers that ran included; Steve Hallas (Vet45 – 17:54), David Watson (Vet-50 18:07 4th in his category), Luke Suffolk (Under 15 20:13) and Ian Patterson (Vet-40 23:56). Reigning English 5k champion Richard Allen of Aldershot Farnham District AC (14:15) and Ciara Mageean of City of Lisburn AC (16:08) were overall male and female race winners.
