Lostock AC were feeling festive this weekend, taking part in a Santa Dash arranged by Madbull Events.

This is a tough 4 mile run with an elevation gain of 700ft. 12 Lostockers joined 111 festive runners in fancy dress at the start line outside Curlys Restaurant. Runners then headed up through wilders wood, continuing up to 2 Lads. It was then all down a slippery hill to pikes cottage and back to Curlys.

Greg Kilshaw was the first member to cross the finish line. Despite being dressed as a Christmas Tree he finished the race in 38:36.

Next home was Sally McCoy in 40:20, Rachel Hancock in 40:40, followed by Anthony Maxwell in 43:58. Heather Soden, Janet Rhodes & Beverly Atherton-McKenna who all ran together, finished in 45:27, Ian Burns in 46:39, Ste Hancock in 48:30 and Jon Tunson in 54:02. Sheila Garewal and Rachel Stevens finished together in 55.36.

Most members entered into the spirit of the fancy dress and loved their medals that were also Christmas tree decorations.

Joining Lostock AC has been one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I decided to give it a try mainly to loose weight and meet new people. It's really helped with my weight, mental health and output on life. I've been in the club over a year now. Everyone makes you feel so welcome and I love being part of the Lostock family. My running has definitely improved, especially seeing all the medals I've won. It is not just running, Lostock offers other activities too such as cycling, bootcamp and skiing. All I've had a go at which has just been brilliant. Lostock is my second family . I have entered the Machester marathon next year and an ultra. All this for someone who couldn't run . Everyone has made me feel very welcome in the club, I now consider myself to be a runner and would recommend anyone to give Lostock a try.

I joined Lostock AC to help improve my running and to motivate me to run more often. The club has surpassed my expectations. I am not from Bolton originally and did not have many friends in the area. I now feel part of an extended family. I have been encouraged and supported to run half marathons, marathons and an Ultra. I would never believe this was possible 3 years ago.
