Skelmersdale Boundary Harriers would like to thank family and friends for their marshalling and support. We would also like to thank Richard Durning’s School and the Farmer’s Arms for the use of their facilities, various farmers for allowing us to cross their land, the Red Cross for first aid and Chris Lyons for the “shower”.

This race couldn’t happen without you.



Unfortunately, a bad fall by one of the runners in the 2010 race resulted in an injury which required assistance from the North West Air Ambulance and the Red Cross. Please visit their websites to see if there is any way you can help them.
