Sunday 8th May saw the Chorley 10k. Endurance Group members Scott Sunderland and Mark Garner made their way to the two lap course, starting and finishing in Market Street and taking in Astley Park and the historic Astley Hall along the way.
The new slimline Sunderland stormed home to a 40 mins 54 secs PB and a top 40 finish. He said after the event “it was a great morning out on a hilly course. The first section was downhill and I managed to keep my pace and not get drawn into matching the fast starters. I managed then to pick my way through them by the end of the first lap. The second lap I became quite isolated and struggled on the hills. The excellent training I have received since joining the Harriers helped me through. It was worth it though with a Pb in the bag and a free Chorley Cake !
Mark made it home in a very respectable 47 mins 37 secs to finish 13th in his age category. A great effort from this busy athlete who is a regular attendee and who has been working so hard in training.
