LOSTOCK AC's Rachel Hancock continued her strong vein of form in the Edenfield fell race where she finished ninth woman and third in her age group.

Starting and finishing at Edenfield Cricket Club, the 6.3-mile race with 1,300 feet of ascent starts with a relentless climb to Coupe Lowe before an undulating ascent to the highest point of the race at Whittle Pike Cross.

A big descent and then near vertical scramble follows before the final 1.5-mile sprint to the finish line.

Hancock achieved her age-group placing in a time of 1hr 7mins 9secs, where she was joined by fellow Lostockers Chris Taylor and Mark Shuttleworth and their respective times of 1:01:29 and 1:05:19.

In parkrun at Bolton, Andy Laycock clocked 24:45, while at Haigh Hall Gareth Pratt finished in 22:38.

At Worsley Woods there was a personal best for Phil Sloane with 25:36.
