Rivington Trail Half Marathon
Rivington ‘Trail’ Half Marathon
This, the 11th event of own ‘Grand Prix’ Series saw 12 Chorley runners take part in this tough but scenic trail half marathon with various standards of trail paths, stairs, various degrees of mud. The ‘sun’ did threaten to materialise but unfortunately never did, either way it was ideal running conditions.
