Race director Stan Jewel has been organising 24 hour events since 1981 when the original Chorley 24 hour took place. Its remarkable that Stan and his wife Barbara have been involved in these kind of events for 35 years. Stan hasn’t made friends with the internet preferring the traditional strategies which focus on personal contact. However Chip-timing is the most convenient timing method which Stan has embraced and the facilities at the UCLAN sports arena can accomodate more runners than have taken part this year – this event has great potential providing another track 24/12 hour opportunity for the UK ultrarunning calendar.
