FRESH from the success of organising the Lostock 6 road race, a 15-strong Lostock team headed to Smithills.

They were there for the first race of the Lostock AC road and trail championship, the Trotters 5.

Leading the Lostock contingent from the start was road captain Stuart Hatton, who carried his 2019 form into the undulating two-lap race to finish seventh in his age group in a time of 36:48.

The second Lostocker home was Janet Rhodes in 40:30 and second in age group.

Andy Ginty came home in 40:53, Rachel Hancock in 41:05 and Andy Laycock in 42:09.

Anthony Maxwell scored another age group top 10 finish as he came home sixth in age group in 43:20, followed by Ian Johnson 44:02 and Jennifer Donnellan 44:32.

Sheila Garewal and Kate Rotheram were seventh and fourth in their respective age groups with 50:26 and 51:42 respectively, with Fran Corcoran turning in a time of 51:50.

Alan Mather crossed the line in 52:30 and Karen Taylor in 54:13.

Regrettably injuries and illness forced Donna Kelsall and Ian Kennedy to retire.

The latest in the Manchester and District Orienteering Club’s winter street league took Albert Sunter to Reddish South.

He finished 20th overall and eighth in the 75-minute score event with 1,500.

Sunter will also be one of numerous Lostockers who will have headed to Wigan yesterday evening for the final race of South Ribble Orienteering Club’s winter street league series.
