Tommy Harrison stormed to victory by nearly half a minute in the second CLGP fixture hosted by Burnden Roadrunners at Smithills today. Dom Gavin and Chris Povey secured top 10 positions under persistent rain, whilst Catherine O’Dwyer was second in the women’s race. The Blue Vests’ 17-strong squad was dwarfed by BRR’s 69, and with strong performances from Leigh, Astley & Tyldesley and a resurgent Radcliffe, the race for all four titles appears as open as it has been in many a year.
BUH&AC times: Tommy Harrison 28:50; Dominic Gavin 31:07; Chris Povey 31:33; Paul Mills 33:24; Catherine O’Dwyer 33:29; Mark Wolstencroft 33:40; Peter Kearney 35:32; Cameron Donnelly 36:21; James Rideout 36:58; David Crystal 37:01; Andrew Gallagher 37:09; Olivia Kearney 37:51; Andrew Barrow 38:18; Rachel Bailey 38:24; Simon Thorne 41:36; David Morrison 44:41; Gerard Tucker 52:05
Elsewhere, Laura Lombard clocked 38:05 in the Trafford 10K for 297th of the 806 field – superb time in a class field.
