Race Report by Darren Graham
On Easter Monday 219 runners put their Easter egg fuel to good use as they raced around Hollingworth Lake in this local 5k race put on by Cannonball Events.
Winner Joseph Crossfield of Halifax Harriers made light work of this one as he sped round in 16:42. Amanda Crook of Southport Waterloo won the ladies race in 17.34, finishing in 4th place overall.
Paul Alexander was the only Todmorden Harrier in action coming 13th place overall and 4th V40 as his first race in the vet category with a finishing time of 18.45. A nice indicator of his fitness as he prepares to take on his first Ultra in May in the Meridian 100km road race.
