Heres a quick plug for the Crosby Lakeside 5K
As the summer season begins to draw to a close the final grand prix of the road race calendar offers a perfect opportunity to bag a fast 5k time at the Crosby 5k.
The course follows a fast flat 5k route around Crosby marine lake and has real potential for a road PB. The “Southport waterloo ac Lakeside 5k” race has a license applied for so will offer a chance to get your times on the rankings websites. So far, 12men and 7 ladies have done 3 or more of the grand prix races (with best 4 races to count). As it stands it looks like Tracey Peters and David Hamilton have the competitions in the bag but it would be great for as many as possible to get out and finalise the grand prix standings for other positions.
The race will start at 7pm from at Crosby Lakeside Activity Centre, and is planned to be free for SWAC club members. the two lap course follows one of the paths through the Park, up on to the Crosby seafront and past the Iron Men, round past the Marina and back to the Centre. David Hamilton currently has the fastest time on this course with his 17:04 clocking in June.
