Gin Pit 5. Sunday 11th Oct.

Neil Pendlebury (26.48) and Colin Rigby (26.52) led the way for Horwich – and the race – in this popular local race, and with Rob Jackson in 6th we easily collected first team. Colin also took the first 0/40 and was well pleased with his performance. Neil had done cross country duties the day before at Kendal, so very happy with his time and place.

Steve Nolan (29.05) is quickly returning to form after a mini absence of training and racing, finishing in 11th place and 2nd vet 0/45. Paul Boardman ran (30.18) for 18th place, with Stuart Adamson (36.52) back on the scene in 94th position, and Barry Allman just behind in 97th by 3 seconds. Dave Roberts made up our successful contingent in 158th place. A good turn out of over 200 runners.
