LOSTOCK AC's Mark Liptrot and Josie Greenhalgh completed a winning double at the Anglezarke Amble trail and fell race.

Starting and finishing in Rivington, the 25 or 17-mile race visits the familiar landmarks of the West Pennine Moors, including Rivington Pike, Winter Hill, Entwhistle, Darwen Tower and White Coppice.

Liptrot lead for all of the race and having seen off a sustained challenge at Great Hill from his nearest competitor, he achieved a deserved victory in a time of 3hrs 54mins.

Greenhalgh spent most of her race as second-placed female until a concerted effort allowed her to take the lead at the final check – a lead that was never relinquished with a winning time of 4:28:00.

Jason Tonge and Mark Sammon completed the Lostock quartet with finishing times of 5:09:00 and 5:39:00.

Paul O'Brien, who is recovering from surgery, completed the 17-mile walking option in 5:36:00.

Also hitting the hills at the Windy Hill fell race in Littleborough were Jocelyn Chadderton and Donna Kelsall, who completed the nine-mile race around the Pennine moors in 1:42:12 and 1:35:39, respectively.

A dozen Lostockers did a 'takeover' at Bolton parkrun to promote the Lostock 6 road race on February 24.

As well as marshalling the race, Lostock AC road captain, Stuart Hatton, turned in a storming performance to finish seventh in a time of 21:28, followed by fellow Lostockers Ian Burns, in 27:57, and Emma Hatton, in a new personal-best time of 30:30.

The Lostock 6 is one of the oldest established road races in the North West, if not the UK.

Entries remain open and details can be found on the Lostock AC website and Facebook page.
