Rochdale 3 Day Event Race

Rochdale 3 Day Event Race

The 18th Annual Rochdale 3 Day Event Race took place at Norden from Fri 8th-Sun 10th June. The event involves three tough races on consecutive days-10km Road Race, 10km Multi-terrain Race and finally the demanding 10km Knowl Hill Fell Race involving 1400 feet of ascent. Conditions were not good for the first two races-wind, rain and mist-but the final race saw sun and clear skies. Horwich Harrier Rob Jackson produced consistently good performances in all three races to win the overall 3 Day Event title for the fifth time.

Paul Boardman also ran on the first day, finishing in a good time of 40:10 and first in his Vet category, 7th place for that day.
