Race Date: Sunday 15th October 2017
The Andrew Heywood Memorial Windgather is a popular fell race organised by Macclesfield Harriers and Athletic Club on the moors around Buxton. This year competitors were asked to come prepared for a wet race, as there had been quite a bit of rain beforehand. Even for Buxton.
First back down was Alasdair Campbell of Buxton AC in a time of 1:36:31 and the first lady was Sarah Lilleman (unattached) in a time of 2:17:20.
Vincent Baker and Alison Barrett provided Striders representation, finishing in 2:21:05 and 2:21:47 respectively. Well done both!
