Conditions were roasting hot as usual for the Freckleton race but there was plenty of water out on the course.
The organisation was second to none and there were some good performances despite the conditions.
Unfortunately though it seems that many NVAC members ran but did not enter the Championships. It was
clearly marked on the application form with a box to tick for NVAC.
The Northern veterans AC extends its sincere thanks to the race organiser Brian Porter and the Freckleton
Club Day Committee for taking on the organisation of this championship. This is the first NVAC Half
Marathon championships since the demise of the East Cheshire race some years ago and it is hoped that this
arrangement can continue.
