Record breaker

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Martin Mere -

DE­SPITE suf­fer­ing from a chest in­fec­tion dur­ing the week, Kirsty Lon­g­ley took part in the Stock­port 10 miler.

She adopted a very re­laxed at­mos­phere to the race and with no watch, de­cided to en­joy the free­dom of run­ning with­out be­ing com­pet­i­tive.

On a course renowned for two steep climbs and a mud field in the mid­dle, her re­laxed ap­proach cer­tainly paid div­i­dends when she fin­ished first lady and 23rd over­all.

What was more sur­pris­ing, was that her time of 59.13 min not only shat­tered the club record by more than two min­utes, but it also put her top of the Run Britain 40+ rank­ings and ahead of GB in­ter­na­tional He­len Clitheroe.
