A number of Stainland Lions, Sowerby Bridge Snails and Northowram Pumas runners took part in the Rock ‘n’ Roll series at the home of The Beatles, Liverpool.

Runners competed in both the Half Marathon and Full Marathon both of which started at the Albert Dock and finished at the Liverpool Arena.

Stainland’s Mags Beever was second in her age category in the marathon, while Simon Rawnsley was second in his age category in the half marathon. Ken Chilcott was delighted to run a big personal best.

Kieran Heaton was the first Snail home in the half marathon in 1:50. Traci Kerridge was disappointed with her time of 2:17 but discovered she had been running with a fractured ankle.

Peter Kerridge was the first Snail home in the full marathon in 3:12. Verity Garside, who finished in 4:33, praised the support of the team while Amanda Aveyard was full of praise for husband Richard for completing his first marathon after only eight weeks of training.

A large contingent from Pumas tackled the half marathon and Shaun Casey spearheaded their challenge in 1:36.
