BURNDEN Road Runners members returned a host of personal-best times from the Myerscough 10 last weekend.

And the team were rewarded for their efforts with a wax block of local creamy Lancashire cheese as their prize.

Lee White cleared the 10 miles in a breathtaking 1hr 2mins 48secs – a new PB for him.

And, fresh from the gruelling Red Rose 10K on the Saturday, cross country captain Paul Duke was hot on White’s heels in a speedy 1:04:46 - also a new PB.

Pete Hopley was third to cross the finish line in a swift 1:06:10.

Category accolades came for the ladies as Gwen Kinloch crossed the line first for the club in a fantastic 1:12:08 and added another V60 win to her impressive list.

Lyndsay Darbyshire was just a few minutes behind in 1:15:29, collecting second V50.

Third lady was Gayle Gerrard in a 1:20:29 – fourth in her V45 category and a new PB, while Anne Ferguson was fourth lady home but came third in her age category with 1:20:36.

As well as White, Duke and Gerrard, new PBs were achieved by Mark Jackson (1:06:58), Adrian Ashburn (1:15:08), Linda O’Byrne (1:22:24) and Jen Forkin (1:51:44).

It was the first 10-miler for fell captain, Ged Turner, who smashed it in a brilliant 1:19:09.

Other results: Andy Dunleavy 1:09:04, Gareth Lowe 1:13:59, Adam Austin 1:16:45, Steven Bate 1:21:24, Paul Drew 1:21:39, Verity Harrison 1:23:26, Andy Warburton 1:25:47, Tony Fulop 1:46:09, Cheryl Dunleavy 1:51:44, Trevor Eagle 2:27:34.

While many members were resting for Myerscough, Duke and Keith Thomas headed to the infamous Marl Pits for the fourth and final race of the Red Rose Cross Country League.

Mud and torrential rain were the rewards waiting for the stalwarts but Duke was rewarded with second Vet 45 when the standings were released for the League.

Kinloch was first V60 for her brilliant performances.

Meanwhile, ‘Race at Your Pace’ December was Louise Righini’s run number 37 for Bolton Hospice.

The Burnden bee ran from Radcliffe towards Leverhulme Park to include some of the parkrun course, then back to Radcliffe.

Saturday brought more runners to parkruns around the country despite the horrendous weather.

Bolton welcomed six Burnden runners in which Mark Jackson finished in 23:49.

Other results: Gareth Doherty 29:51, Kathryn Berry 29:54, Jenni Partington 30:49, Paul Johnson 32:12, Ian Mann 35:52.

Simon Marland and Sue Blackman headed to Windy Nook Parkrun – completing in 25:55 and 37:26 respectively.

Worsley Woods was represented by Steven Bate who crossed in 24:10, Haigh Woodland by Liz Hopley in 32:17 and Alexandra Parkrun by Adrian Ashburn in 21:50.
