At home in Cheshire for Christmas, Steve Mitchell travelled even further North to compete in the Ribble Valley 10k in Lancashire on 27th December 2011. This race hosted its traditional strong field as befits a race that incorporates the Northern Championships and Steve took full advantage of a competitive field to finish tenth with a chip time of 30:07. This time reduced his 10k PB by 1 minute 34 seconds from the same event 2 years ago and ranks him fiftieth in the UK over 10k on Power-of-10 for 2011 – breathing down the necks of the club’s more established 10k specialists – Robbie Bugden (29:55), Jon Wills (29:56) and Phil Wylie (29:59). Well done Steve – a great end to 2011.
