2019 Road Championship – Awards

We didn’t manage to get together for an awards night this year. A few of the winners did get together for a picture:

Lindsey, Debbie and Maria


  • Lindsey Farrelly – Women’s Champion,
  • Wendy Woodhead – 1st FV35,
  • Maria Royal – 1st FV60,
  • Debbie Beresford – 1st FV50
  • Mark Jones – Men’s Champion,
  • Maurice Oldham – 1st MV65,
  • Craig Turner – 1st MV50,
  • Kevin Dillon – 1st MV60
  • Arnold Bradshaw – 1st MV70.

Given the lack of races this year we’re rolling the 2020 and 2021 Senior Road Race Championships into one so any races you did manage will still count. Rules here: Senior Road Running Championship

2019 Calculations below.

Virtual Stockport 10

A fair few of us do the Stockport 10M each year. Quite why we get up on a Sunday morning in early December to race a tough 10 mile route in often grim weather, I don’t know. Maybe it’s the friendly atmosphere of the race, maybe it’s the varied course, maybe it’s simply to work of the affects of the Christmas party season?

This year it was virtual. So we did it in a few groups, across two weekends and – I think – enjoyed it.

Full results here, but a special mention to Dave Walmsley for winning the V50 category.

Finished. Yes, it was cold.

2019 Road Championship

It’s most unlikely we will be able to hold a Presentation Evening this year, so we’ve decided to publish the 2019 Road Championship results. Members are asked to look through the list of “Races Run” and the “Table”; if you find any errors and/or omissions, please contact Brenda by the 14th November. As it stands, we’ll be giving nine awards as shown on the “Winners” attachment and we’ll post the awards to the winning individuals early in December.

2018 Road Championship Results

The results of the 2018 road championships are below with Wendy Woodhead and Ed Fazakerley topping the scoreboards:

There’s still time to get your name on a 2019 trophy! Details or on the last page of the fixtures list, but roughly you have to complete at least five races out of the following:

  • Up to three 5Ks
  • One 5M
  • Up to three 10Ks
  • Up to two 10Ms
  • Up to two Half Marathons
  • Up to two Marathons
  • Plus three named races: Wilmslow Half, Swinton Ladies 5.25M and your best Sale Sizzler.

If that seems hard to follow, don’t ask me exactly how the scoring works. Sir Isaac Newton claimed he discovered the mathematics of Calculus whilst trying to advance the science of physics, but I think he was just trying to work out the MANHAC road championships scoring.
