Hoad Hill Harrier Dave Fulford finished third in the Lancaster Riverside 10-Mile race last Sunday in what was a successful day for the club's six runners that took part.

The race started near the Millennium Bridge and went out back along the River Lune towards the motorway as far as the Holiday Inn.

The course then did a U-turn back to the bridge, and went over to Trimpell where the athletes ran a small triangle and then returned to the bridge and finish where they started.

The sextet of Hoadies had to brave very warm conditions during the race's duration and three of them took home prizes as they all ran excellent times.

Fulford was the first of them to finish, as he crossed the line third overall in a brilliant time of 57 minutes 23 seconds and he wasn't the only Harrier to finish in the top ten.

Gary Dover finished ninth in clocking 01:06:00, which also made him the fastest over-55 veteran in the race.

Darren Coward (01:13:45) was 28th while Lewis Watts managed to make light of the fact that he only arrived just before the race began due to a train from Barrow running late by crossing the line 34th in 01:16:59.

Sally Barton was the first female over-55 veteran to finish as she clocked 01:27:57 to finish 62nd overall while Janine McNeil was also very pleased with her time of 01:40:13.
