Brownlee is out to extend fine record

Have your say

athletics: Jonny Brownlee (Bingley) is among the entries for the Boxing Day Chevin Chase at Guiseley today.

The organisers, Airecentre Pacers, expect him to line up in a field approaching the 1,000 mark when he will attempt to stretch a fine record in this popular event, held over a tough seven-mile course.

The younger Brownlee brother, former triathlon world champion and Olympic bronze medallist, has won for the last three years and has a best time of 37mins 57secs.

Prior to that he was, for three years, runner-up to his brother Alistair, Olympic triathlon champion, who is not expected to run this time.

The race limit was reached some weeks ago and there will be no entries on the day. The race starts at 11am with the start and finish at Guiseley Infants School.
