Chorley Harriers have made it a complete sweep of the trophies in the Central Lancashire Inter Club Grand Prix.

After narrowly coming second to Horwich last year captain Chris Lane was determined to try and win the main trophy.

And not only did the Harriers win the main team prize but they also took the "B" team cup, Male Vet cup and the Ladies team prize.

The Grand Prix consists of eight races, one from each of the competing clubs with ace distances ranging from the short four-mile to the half marathon. Clubs are expected to field a minimum of 18 runners in each race.

As the series was coming to an end and with Harriers slightly ahead on points, a last minute effort was required to ensure sufficient numbers turned out. At the recent Rufford 10k, there were 38 Harriers in the field. In the Swinton Half Marathon, spectators could be forgiven if they thought only Chorley Harriers had entered, because at one stage six Harriers crossed the line in procession.

Chris Lane said: "It's been a tremendous effort by all members of the club. To win one cup would have been great but to take the lot is fantastic and a great advertisement for the club."

"At the last race, Michael Murray arrived five minutes after the start but was determined to finish so as not to let down the club. It has been this type of spirit showed by the entire club that has helped to win Harriers this title."
