Fourteen members of Todmorden Harriers made their way to Abbey Village near Chorley for Sunday’s Roddlesworth Roller 9k Trail Race.

The route, described as undulating and tough, winds past the reservoir, then climbs up through woods to the top of the course. After a dash down the road, it’s back onto the trails for the run to the finish.

The race was won by Chris Singleton of Trawden AC in an excellent time of 33 mins 33 secs. Darren Tweed was Harrier back in his first Grand Prix race of the year.

There were category wins for Andrew Bibby at V60 and Elise Milnes at V50, both continuing last year’s good form.

A good day out was enjoyed by all with cake at the finish.

The next Grand Prix events are the Trimple 20 this Sunday in the road championship and a short race in the fell championships at Midgley Moor on Match 23.
