In the midst of Storm Hannah and with winds gusting along the prom, Lara lined up for the start of the race with the rest of the hardy runners, who chose to brave the elements.
Lara completed the race last year coming third and was looking forward to hopefully improving on that this year.
Lara had an great race in some pretty horrific conditions, starting off amongst the men at the front she battled the wind from the start keeping the first place lady in sight. Pushing hard all the way to the line, she was pleased to finish second woman home with a new PB of 21:31, an improvement on her time from the Wigan 5K in March. Lara was also first in the 11-14 girls age category.
Lara was happy with her weekends work and showed some true Westholme spirit in some extreme conditions.
