MASTERS – NORTHERN TEAM SILVER FOR ALI AND GARETH
On a pretty humid morning, Horwich had three vets running on the local BMAF 5k race which turned out to be a pretty quick race for the old guys with the winner running 15.16 on a tough course.
Whilst Ali ran Gareth down, it was a pretty closely matched race with Ali started the race and was running super quick for the 1st mile. Gareth finally got into the race and at one stage, both were closing down local runner, Nick Leigh but with 0.5miles to go Ali pushed hard to gain the few secs before the final run for home.
On a tough course, both runners were happy with their performance as they both compared well against 2011 times and look forward to the continued rivalry over this distance in the next few months
