THE mountain tops of the Isle of Jura and Snowdonia were the destination for Lostock AC's fell runners over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Heading to the Western Isles and the Isle of Jura fell race for an impressive 29th time were Albert Sunter and Tony Marlow – only a week after their impressive form at the Old County Tops fell race.

The Isle of Jura fell race covers a distance of 28k and climbs 2,370m to the summit of seven mountains, including the Paps of Jura with their notoriously steep ascents and descents.

Sunter finished the arduous race in 5hrs 13mins 01sec, followed closely by Marlow in 5:14:04.

Llanberis, in the heart of Snowdonia, was the destination for Mark Liptrot and Mark Checkley and the Ras Moel Eilio fell race.

Taking in 3,000 feet of climbing and visiting the summits of Moel Eilio, Foel Gron, Fowl Groch and Moel Lynghorion, Liptrot finished the eight-mile race in 1:37:56 with Checkley finishing in 2:09:48.

Closer to home, six Lostockers headed to Smithills School on Sunday for the Mast 10k.

Building on her strong showing at the Cheshire Triathlon, Rachel Hancock was the first Lostocker home in 55:50, followed by Adam Lowe (56:07), Kerry Varden (1:01:15), Stuart Hatton (1:02:15), Julie Honour (1:03:31) and Jocelyn Chadderton (1:07:00).
