Hospice helped by Har­ri­ers’ hand­i­cap

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - SCOTT WILSON

PER­FECT con­di­tions on early Box­ing Day al­lowed for the Mac­cles­field Har­ri­ers an­nual hand­i­cap fun run.

The aim of the run is for all par­tic­i­pat­ing run­ners to guess a time in which that they can com­plete the 3.8-mile course around Lan­g­ley and Higher Sut­ton – with­out the use of a watch.

In a wide range of guesses some were as close as three seconds, while oth­ers were as far away as six min­utes 39 seconds.

Thiry-eight run­ners at­tended the event – with many new faces com­pared to last year.

The win­ner of the hand­i­cap and clos­est to her time was Mac­cles­field Har­rier, An­drea Frost – who was an im­pres­sive three seconds out. Jamie Thomp­son was the sec­ond clos­est – 17 seconds from his time, fol­lowed by Paul Sher­cliff who was 20 seconds away.

The run­ner to com­plete the course in the fastest time was Lloyd Hil­ton in a time of 22:01.

A to­tal close to £100 was raised for the East Cheshire Hospice – with many thanks go­ing out to vol­un­teers that made the day pos­si­ble and with thanks to the Dun­stan pub in Lan­g­ley for open­ing early and al­low­ing the club to use the pub as a ‘base of op­er­a­tions’ for the day.
