Northern Masters 10 Mile Road Championship
Todmorden Harrier’s Paul Brannigan was their sole runner at the Sweatshop 10 mile road race in Bispham. The race incorporated the Northern Masters championships, the Lancashire championships and the Fire Service championships, which lead to a very long presentation post-race.
Brannigan continued an inexplicable recent series of below-par performances running his slowest time in a Tod vest. His time of 66.48 was good enough to fluke the Northern Masters V50 title due to the unusually poor quality of that field and to finish 4th in the Lancashire V50 championship.
