Horwich 5


Well another race completed in our Road Championships and there is only really two words that I can use to describe this race, "Bloody Midgies"

The chaos of parking started to commence from 6.30pm followed by usual queing for registration and toilets.

24 blue vests managed to registered on time with just Phil Riley missing out, but he still completed the race as a training run - Good Man !!

Mark Lysycia was on hand at the start to take the accustom group photograph, however by this time most of us had been bitten numerous times and were already playing Dot to Dot !!

The race started promptly and 248 runners set of on the beautiful scenic route round Rivington. The weather was kind again and it was great to finally have a road race, on a ROAD !  (Don't get used to it)  The route consisted of two loops with a roller coaster style hill on each lap.  It was great to see Shaun Moran and Susan Gregory at the top of the hill shouting encouragement along with the ever present Michaela Shaw.

Unfortunately it wasn't a race to hang around for at the end as the midges were out in full force on the finish line and I for one is suffering from the bites this morning.

First back for A&T was Simon Ford which is a great send off prior to his BOB GRAHAM round next week - we wish him well .   Simon was followed home by Neil Hughes and Matt Thorpe.

First back for the ladies was Josie Maley who was sixth overall and picked up a prize, next home were the two sisters in Louise Simpson and Rachel Haslam.

Ian Hamilton picked up an award for 1st V65 so great effort again.
