    Don Ashton Memorial race

    About 3 weeks to go until race day, my first as a "fully fledged" RO...

    7:15pm start - registration at the Rock Inn, Tockholes - the start is a 5 minute jog away... 5 entry on the day with plenty of prizes and a cash prize for new records!

    Kindly sponsored by Norman Walsh UK again - A pair of Walsh PB's for the 1st male, 1st female and a lucky person who stays for the presentation (spot prize!)

    A pewter tankard on offer (to keep) for the 1st V50 too. Also race day price Walsh trainers will be on offer

    Hopefully mate. A shame, although understandable with the time of year...Scotland followed by Italy for me the day after!

    Catch you soon bud

    I've had a few messages re: is the race still on due to it's proximity to Winter Hill...

    ...Yes the race is still on, the race route, registration etc is not at all affected by the fires.

    There has been a road closure on a small section of Belmont Road which may affect runners coming over from Bolton, but that is the only knock-on effect thus far...

    See you all on Thursday

    Results from last Thursday are here.

    The record attendance was smashed - it previously sat at 99 from 2017, we had 143 runners this year.

    Josh Boyle & Rob Hope both under the previous course record - as were the first three ladies; Katie Walshaw, Louisa Powell-Smith and Amy Freeman.

    1,000 raised in total (this includes 100% of entry fee's and the raffle) - all this will go to the East Lancashire Hospice this year.

    A huge thanks again to all runners and my fantastic team of helpers.
