IT WAS A double success for Lincoln Wellington with both the men’s and women’s titles won with plenty to spare.

Joe Steward put East Cheshire in front on the opening stage of the senior men’s race, his time of 9:49 for the two-lap course remaining unbeaten. It was a sizeable lead, too, over Derby’s Alex Pilcher (9:57), who led Lincoln’s Joe Wilkinson by a couple of seconds. It was a very competitive first stage and produced the six fastest times of the race.

Tom Straw (10:20) took Lincoln into the lead, with Daniel Lawton moving Trafford into second place ahead of Derby at the halfway mark.

Stage three saw Ronny Wilson increase Lincoln’s lead with Derby back to second and Sheffield University coming into the bronze medal position. The race for the title was as good as over and Matt Bowser’s anchor stage was a formality, although he did not hang about, clocking a solo 10:09.

Hugo Milner (10:13) was not much slower, sealing second place for Derby, while a fighting performance from Matthew Sheen (10:18) took Vale Royal from sixth to third. They had improved throughout after a first stage finish of 11th. It was Sheen who deprived the Sheffield students of a medal.

Lincoln Wellington retained their senior women’s title in style, winning by more than half a minute from Rotherham, who just pipped Birtley to the silver position. Leeds were well below strength, but their opening runner, Georgia Malir, had a splendid run, leading most of the way only to be out-sprinted by Liverpool’s Rachael Burns, whose time of 11:37 was the fastest of the race, followed three seconds behind by Malir.

Matthew Bowser anchored the win

Both Leeds and Liverpool faded from contention as Lincoln’s Bella Williams (11:59) stormed into a 20-second lead over Wakefield with Birtley third. Williams took the lead two thirds of the way round the two mile course.
