Lostock Athletics Club member Hazel Hatfield completed an epic challenge last weekend when she completed the Warrington Way.

The race, organised by Lymm Runners, is a 40-mile trail ultramarathon that starts and finishes in the Cheshire village of Lymm.

Runners follow a route which is mostly on tracks, footpaths, field crossings and country lanes to circumnavigate the town of Warrington anti-clockwise.

This was the second time Hatfield had braved the course and she made her club members proud by securing a personal-best time, completing the race in an impressive 8hrs 27mins.

Johanna McManus, despite the awful weather on Sunday, completed the Windmill Remembrance Day 10k in Lytham St Anne’s.

This is a fast and flat course on the coastal front of Lytham, starting on Lytham Green next to the Windmill itself.

A two-minute silence is observed before the start of the event for Remembrance Sunday.

McManus had a fantastic race, finishing in 46:46 as second FV40 and the 23rd female to cross the finish line.

Rachel Hancock and Janet Rhodes took part in the third of the Sunnywood Project Stranger Trails series and as part of the trail run, runners learned about the Gristlehurst Boggart.

Runners enjoyed the stunning trails through woodlands and fields in search of the precise location for where the boggart is said to have been laid to rest, having been killed by a wooden stake through its chest. However, legend suggests its death did not prevent further mischief taking place.

Lostockers took part in parkrun as usual as well last Saturday.

At Bolton, Tony Maxwell (25:59) was the first across the finish line and first in his age category, followed by Rachel Hancock (27:59), Shelia Garewal (31:22) and Stephen Hancock (36:39).

Andy Laycock (24:06), Gareth Pratt (27:29) and Ian Burns (28:28) took part in Haigh Woodland Parkrun and Tony Marlow (24:03) travelled to Worden Parkrun.
