Sunday morning saw Penny Lane Striders notch up another race win, this time in the NWSCCL fixture at Beacon Park. Martin Swensson's imperious form continued with overall victory on a tough course, whilst counting positions for Neil Bullock, Neil Kelly, Bob Barrows, Jonathan Hazell and captain Dale Higham secured a comfortable finishing margin over title contenders Knowsley Harriers and Liverpool Running Club. This means that Penny Lane Striders can secure their first ever NWSCCL title with a second place finish at the Birchwood Park season finale.
The club's women were 7th on the day and consolidated their 6th place in the overall standings. A strong debut from Sharon Samson saw her come home 10th, ahead of fellow counters Pamela Thurtle and Cristina Puccini.
