Chorley Inter Club race - Wednesday 13th August 2014
A competitive atmosphere was very evident at last week’s Chorley Inter Club, not just club against club but within the ranks of Preston Harriers. With championship honours being contested the leading Harrier protagonists David Rigby and Robert Affleck stamped their dominance on proceedings right at the start. As the race progressed each athlete ramped up his cadence to test each other’s strength over the tough undulating Astley Park route. The overall victory was decided by an explosion of pace over the last 400 metres with Affleck storming the line in 25.40 and Rigby pushing hard for 2nd in 25.49. The Harriers men continued to dominate the event with Gethin Butler taking a comfortable fourth in 27.56 and a trio of athletes following in close quarters with David Watson (29.24), Neil Mc Donald (29.36) and Richard Smith (29.37).
