Derby midweek road races

AN almost perfect evening for running produced two very close results at the fifth of the eight races in the 23rd season of monthly Derby Winter Midweek Road Race series (writes David Denton).

In the one--mile race, Sale Harriers young track team manager, Dean Hardman running for his second claim club managed to use his track speed to just edge ahead of Derby’s international, Ellie Stevens to win in 4.53 with Heanor’s veteran runner, Ashley Deeming being a further second behind.

After victory in a recent Milford Duathlon, Stephen Price left it too late to overtake Martin Lewis in the 5km race after Lewis, based at Loughborough, had built up a significant lead by 3km.
