Swinton 10miles Road Race
The 3rd annual Swinton 10miles Road Race took place on a cloudy, breezy morning over the undulating course which replaced the original Swinton Half Marathon which was held for 30 years. The race incorporated the latest stage of the Central Lancs Grand Prix and attracted over 200 entries.
Horwich Harriers were lead home by Rob Jackson in 10th place overall and 2nd vet45. Amazingly this was Rob’s 26th consecutive Swinton Half/10m Race and he maintained his record of always finishing in the top 10. Strong runs from Dave Jackson in 15th place and 4th vet40 and Sean McMyler in 21st and a super 1st vet 50 gave Horwich 3rd team behinh Bolton Harriers and Leigh Harriers. Colin Wood 92nd and 5th vet55, Mark Swindell 111th and 20th vet40 and Dave Wagstaff 150th and 24th vet40 also competed.
