This is a Handicap Race of 2.2 miles on the road with slower runners being given a start by faster runners,the idea is that everyone finishes together. The reason for the strange distance is the race used to be run along Chorley New Road from the Mechanics Institute to the Behive Pub and back but due to increased traffic over the years this has now been moved for safety reasons. Guest runners are allowed to compete but cannot take the Cup. The race now takes place on Georges lane in Horwich.

Sophie Walton at Loughborough International running 23.43 in the guest race and also running the qualifying time of sub 23.60 to qualify for the Worlds. This ranks Sophie as Number 1 and her time would have won her gold in the main race later in the day. Keep up the great work the future is looking really promising. ... See MoreSee Less
