Chorley Athletic and Triathlon Club member Christine Sweatman, undertook the Greater Manchester X-C Champs at Leigh rather than the Lancashire ones at Blackburn, and did well as 40th lady in 35:40.

Four Chorley juniors travelled to Barrow for the Mid Lancs cross country on Saturday, but all competed well making the trip worthwhile.

U11 Daniel Lilley and Jack Hughes ran strongly, continuing their close finishes, with Daniel just getting in front of a tiring Jack on the finish line to finish 10th and 11th.

Tom Perks finished 23rd over a very sticky course. U13 Ben Hughes tried valiantly to keep up with the race leaders for as long as possible, and finished 8th having given everything over the 3.2km course.

The hotdogs and homemade cake tasted especially good after their efforts.

In the Parkrun series, at Cuerden Valley David Parkinson led home the other eight Chorley runners to finish in 21mins 6 secs.
