This annual 10K race and fun run took place on Sunday 13th January and was a great success with over 500 runners taking part.

GCA staff volunteers raised over £300 serving refreshments and are very grateful to Sainsbury's who donated buns and vegan sausages for the event.

Winner of the race was Matthew Lalor (Ribble Valley Harriers) with a fantastic time of 33 minutes and 56 seconds, while Victoria Mousley (Blackburn Harriers) was the fastest woman with a time of 39 minutes and 52 seconds.  Well done to everyone who took part in this community event.

Thanks go to Garstang Hockey Club, the Garstang Rotary, the Gasrtang Lions, parent and staff volunteers who generously gave their time to steward the course, organise the car parking arrangements and serve refreshments.  Many thanks to Cllr Leah Hynes, Mayor of Garstang for starting the race and handing out medals to the runners.  Also thanks to Steve Ashcroft, race organiser, and we look forward to the 2020 event!
