Sunday 28th September 2013
The sun shone on the 188 runners as they started what is a surprisingly tough 2 lap course that consisted of long sustained inclines and a sting in the tail with a tough steep hill in the last 1/2 mile !
It was great to see some new members toeing the line with a number having only competed the day before on the fells at the clubs trial race at Thieveley Pike, near Burnley. Joe Mercer, our newest member taking the honours in this race !
Overall, we had 12 Horwich runners competing at Swinton and our other new club super star in the shape of Chris Farrell, battled it out towards the front end and was well supported by Martyn Bell and Joe Mercer to claim the team honours.
As always our first 10 runners will contribute towards the overall points in the CLGP but the calculations of where we currently place as a club are yet to be determined going into the final Grand Prix event at Gin Pit next Sunday.
Full results can be found on the following link: –
The final race at Gin Pit will be on Sunday 6th October at 10.00am and registration will be at the – Miners Welfare Club, Gin Pit Village, Ley Road, Tyldesley, Manchester, M29 7DW
Thank you for your continued support and best of luck in this race.
