Junior Jubilee 1m Race
The 1 Mile Street race is showing popularity at Chorley as well as our home Street Race with total of 44 Horwich juniors running
on Wednesday evening other local clubs made up the 66 strong race for what is becoming very competitive racing.
In the Boys races we had winners in all age groups with Lewis Wilkes taking the race win closely followed by Luke Brindle.
Luke & Thomas Massey taking age group wins along with Daniel Rowe.
The Girls also put out a splendid result with Freya Whittle & Ella Pendlebury 2nd in their age groups. Ellie Baker getting her first
ever age group win.
The Series winners will be the best 3 of 4 races, that similar to the Red Rose XC. Many thanks to all who helped on the night and
a special mention to Christa without who we would have had no timing device.
Juniors Street Race
25 Horwich Athletes made the race on the night. A total of 41 runners, most entering the full series has given us the belief that this series could get more popular with local clubs.
Results can be found here albeit being provisional;- http://www.race-results.co.uk/results/2013/horwich1.pdf
Well done to all the youngsters who managed to get round. A big well done to the Penny Townsend 1ST girl & Nathan Townsend 1st boy past the line. Another mention has to go out to Jodie who fell at the start, however setting a good example by getting up and carrying on to the end albeit a bleeding elbow, well done.
The evening went rather well and other clubs thanked us for putting it on, particularly Leigh & Chorley. I hope all will support our next outing @ ASTLEY Park series 2 weeks from LAST NIGHT.
The Horwich Jubilee 5m Road Race – Wed 15th June
Central Lancs Grand Prix
Horwich RMI Road Championship
Horwich Overall Club Championship
Another high turnout of runners, 255 finishers, proved what a difference being part of the Central Lancs Grand Prix can make. We also had another good turnout especially at the front of the race which meant we beat Bolton by 4 points and remain leaders of the Grand Prix, our vets are also leading their part of the series. Thanks to Martyn Bell for his efforts to encourage our quicker runners to race and there is no doubt that their presence is motivating the group of runners just behind them and the rest of us further down the field.
Please put in your diary the next race in the series, it is – The Three Sisters 5k at Ashton in Makerfield nr Wigan.
