Burnley Half Marathon

The Box Hill Men’s winter team finished off the season on a successful note with an overall second placing at the Burnley Half Marathon on Sunday 16 September 2001. This second placing enabled the team to clinch second place on the ladder for the season which was a fine effort considering the slow start to the season.

On a warm and windy morning, Marcus Tierney showed that he is returning to good form with a strong run to finish 13th in 71:08. He was closely followed by Dale Bickham for most of the race who completed his best ever winter race to finish in 17th place with a time of 71:57. Graeme Olden and Luke Yeatman finished 23rd and 31st with times of 74:24 and 76:07 respectively to fill the Division 1 team. A number of other athletes completed part of the course, however Westly Windsor outlasted them all to finish in 155th place with a time of 90:06.
