Flower Scar Fell Race


Thirteen Lions headed to Todmorden on Saturday to tackle the steep climbs, rough moorland terrain and fast descents of the annual Flower Scar Fell Race. 185 runners completed the 13K route in wintry conditions, with reduced visibility and mist on the tops.

Great North West Half Marathon


A fast and flat course around the coastal front of Blackpool, the Great North West Half Marathon is billed as a great race for a personal best, and an ideal warm up race for April marathons such as London.  Clayton Cutter was the Lions’ sole representative, completing the course in a new personal best time of 1:36:18.


Liversedge Half Marathon


Liversedge Half Marathon proved popular with the Lions, who turned out in force to run the undulating route in good conditions on Sunday.  Darren Young finished 3rd M45 of a competitive field of almost 500 runners.
