What a fantastic turnout for Chorley with 23 runners – in near perfect conditions for running. Talking to quite a few of the Chorley runners after the race today with a lot mentioning PB’s from last year or they would have been on track for a new 10k PB. Is this all the ‘winter’ training paying off, could this be due the excellent turnouts and coaching at Holy Cross on Monday nights!!! I think so.
244 runners took part in this event with the eventual winner coming in at a time of 29:48.
