On Saturday 24 November, elite athlete Matt Clowes will attempt to break the long-standing course record of 30:42 at the Cheddleton 10K. The 31-year old record was set by Clifton Bradeley in 1987. Many before Matt have attempted to break Clifton’s record and failed, but in Matt’s current form this will be a serious attempt to break what is thought to be a near impossible course record.
We will be reporting on the outcome of the attempt on the day.
