Start of the inaugural Chorley 6 Hour Race 2015

Race Director Stan Jewell has just been informed that the Chorley 6 Hour Race 2015 records have been ratified.

Les Hill set a new GBR M55 Road 6 hour record – 63.200 km, 39m 587y
Mark Bissell set a new GBR M35 Road 6 hour record -75.058 km, 46m 1126y
Geoff Russell set a new GBR M45 road 6 hour record – 57.776 km, 35m 1584y

The inaugural 2015 event had a very small field but that field was a high quality turnout and Stan is delighted that these performances have raised the standards to new highs that is commensurate with the recent performances of the British Athletics team in Rio and we congratulate these runners for these excellent achievements.

Hopefully these new benchmarks will inspire other runners to test themselves.
