Murder Mile 27th August

Murder Mile 27th August

After an absence of some 8 years the Murder Mile has returned to Horwichs race programme with a different course to before, up to the top of Winter Hill from the bottom of the ramp. A total climb of 500 foot making it a tough race.

There where 23 starters with Juniors and Seniors racing together for the first time along with friends from Chorley, Bolton, and Lostock. As expected England International Chris Farrell won by 20 seconds from Nick Leigh with Chris Essex Crosby third 90 seconds adrift. An exceptional run by junior Cian Healy saw him finish fourth overall only one second behind third with Nathan Lancaster 7th 9 seconds behind and Toby Midddleton fresh from winning a 5K in Vancouver third one minute further behind. First Lady was England International Lindsey Brindle despite going over on her ankle with Erica Booth second just getting the better of first Lady Vet Sandra Kelly by six seconds. The first junior girl was Freya Whittle in 18th with Milly Lever runner up in that category after a hard fought race. A special mention to 8 year old Theo Middleton who completed the race in just over 16 minutes and his father Jason getting back in the racing mode after open heart surgery. Well done to the both of them.
