2021 Race Reports


Partners Will Tomlinson and Heather Brown may have made history in Bolton Park Run on Saturday 6th November. Both recent recruits to Dave Shaw’s Harriers group are they the first couple to win by gender in its history ? Will stormed home in 18 mins 27 secs and Heather was first lady in 20 mins 54 secs. Will was the only runner in sub 19 mins. Heather continued her fine form from the Rochdale 10k and  Manchester Marathon proving her strength as a great all rounder. This Parkrun was made even more notable by the fact that five out of the first six were from Bolton Harriers. Sully Badat continues to shine with second place and a pb of 19 mins 10 secs. Sully has improved by over a  minute in just the last month at Bolton Parkrun. Joe Grisdale, from the same Dave Shaw stable as Will and Heather, was not far behind in third spot with another sub 20 mins run. Rachel Bailey was second lady and 6th overall with yet another solid run of 21 mins 13 secs. Other notable harriers runs were provided by Gary Porteous in 23 mins and another sub 24 mins run from young Lily Philbin.
