New Club 10km Run Record

Well done to Chris Millington, who set a new West Lancs Tri Club 10km running Record this month!

Chris set a new record time of 35 minutes and 53 seconds in the Ormskirk 10km Road Race on the 23rd September 2018, eclipsing the old time set by Mark Howard, which had stood for a very long time.

The icing on the cake was that Chris came 2nd in the Ormskirk 10km against a high calibre local field.
