There were some great performances from Barlick Fellrunners at the Burnley Lions 10k as Jimmy Craig and Sarah Tipler continue to pursue the Grand Prix titles.

Craig came in second behind Marc Hartley of Stoke in a time of 35 minutes, and Tipler made it three wins from four in 40.07 minutes.

Jean Rawlinson also leads the V60 category with another age group win.

There were 15 Barlickers in the race but that was topped at Kelbrook as 19 took to the start line, with Craig getting the better of Hartley in a time of 21.44. Tipler earned another win, missing out on the course record by three seconds. Andy Berry made the top 10 and Rawlinson won her category yet again.

Two Barlickers travelled to Edinburgh for the marathon - John Boothman knocked six minutes off his personal best in a time of 3:22 and Michael Alexander ran his target of just under four hours.

There was also a race win in the Bowley Hill trail for Matt Lalor.
