John Haworth

Sadly, John died on Friday morning, 12 April, aged 86.  He was an important member of the club,  ( see a recent article about him)  a Committee member and  Secretary for a number of years. I had known him since 1965 and run with him on some epic adventures; the Bob Graham Round, Lakes 3,000 footers,  Lakes County Tops and the Welsh 3,000 footers.  On the last one we left Burnley at 2.00am and returned at 2.00am the next day.  He was a leading organiser of the Clayton team that ran the first ever Pennine Way Relay.  He competed in all the running disciplines for many years and eventually bacame an Associate Member as he ran less and walked more, completeing the Scottish Munros twice.
