I've heard rumours the Primary League medal meeting has moved from the 24th June to 1st July - can anyone confirm this please?

Unfortunately and regrettably, next week's Great Hill Fell Race has had to be cancelled due to lack of pre-entires (forecasting a substantial financial loss) and some other organisational issues. Anybody who has pre-entered will receive a full refund. My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

FYI ... there is no Preston Parkrun next week.

It's Chorley's Great Hill Fell Race next Saturday 18th June 2016, and we need runners and helpers. Race starts at 15:00. There should be a fair and stalls on the cricket field so please come along with the family.

Only two Chorley runners headed to the far North York Moors for the Lazonby 10k. Back after many years of injury and no racing, Stephe Fletcher was pleased with his sub-63 min time on a very hilly course in 26C temperatures. Simon Townsend just missed a top 10 finish with a time of 48:31.

The first Badger 10K of 2016 in Cuerden Park was contested by a few Chorley athletes in lovely conditions with Martin Quinn(6th & 2nd V40), David Parkinson(14th & 1st V45), Dan Edwards(28th), Mark Bond(48th), Jane Bowles(96th & 4th F45), Kevin Thompson(116th), Alison Fowler(156th) & Mike Coppin(192nd & 2nd V70). Chorley were the 3rd team overall.

Once again, thanks to all Chorley members that came out to run and help tonight. A great effort meant another successful event :)

Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make the 3rd Katie Hewison Chorley Duathlon a success. About 300 people took part. Everyone was a star, whether you baked a cake, took part, marshalled for an hour, or spent hours helping before, or on the day. It couldn't have happened without you! If you baked a chocolate cake with pigs on it, you're a winner too! Get in touch & we'll sort your prize out :-)

Calling all bakers! Bakers of all ages, your Club needs you!

There will be a Cake Stall run by volunteers at the Duathlon on Saturday 7th May in Astley Park. All donations, by budding and experienced bakers, to the stall for us to sell will help to boost funds to the club. The stall will also help to feed hungry athletes, spectators and volunteers!

We can receive cakes on the Friday before and then leave them in the Pavilion on Astley Park overnight. They MUST be covered, or in boxes, labelled with names if the boxes are to be returned to you. Please bring donations to the Pavilion between 5pm and 6pm on Friday 6th May, or from 8.30am, direct to the Cake Stall on Saturday 7th May.

There will be a prize of £5 for the most delicious looking home-made donation! Bought donations would be just as gratefully accepted however!

Hi All, There has been a change of one of the 'Road/Trail' GP Series - The Worden Park 10k clash with the Calderdale Relays on the 15th May - This is a club event and takes priority. I've now included the Preston Interclub race on the 11th May as part of the 'Road/Trail' GP Series and so the Worden Park 10k will not be included in the points system. I'm sorry if anyone has booked it - like myself but it will still be a great local event. Cheers Rob W

New to the U11 category, Alayana Ahmed also very well with a 3rd place in 80m, 4th in Long Jump and 9th in 600m.

If you fancy a hilly park run, then the one in Lancaster is for you. Starting and finishing at the Ashton Memorial on the top of Williamson Park, it was never going to be a flat course, but undaunted by the promise of some serious hills Simon and Anya Townsend with 300 fellow park runners decided to give it a go. The course is hilly and twisty, but is very picturesque, once the usual crowded Parkrun start is eventually cleared. Simon came home in 38th in a time of 23:35, with Anya (just getting back into running) in 127th and a time of 28:49. The course is a two lap course, passing the Aston Memorial at the end of each lap. As a consequence it is probably a little tougher than the Cuerden Valley course; but very much recommended :D

Hi Lisa, please can you tell me if the £5 include drinks as well? Thank you!
