Former winner returns for the Cathedral Dash in Lichfield

The winner of the 2007 Cathedral Dash is returning to the Lichfield event.

Organisers of theTechstep Lichfield Cathedral Dash have confirmed Chris Taylor of Hallamshire Harriers will contest this year’s race on July 17.

The Sheffield athlete has been plagued by injuries over the last twelve months and sees the Lichfield event as another challenge for his rehabilitation for 2010.

He explained:

“It is very special for me to be the 2007 winner and to come back and compete against class acts as Jimmy Watkins would be a real challenge. I’ve had a winter dogged by one injury after another but it’s such a special and unique event, I can’t resist the calling of the chimes.”

Dash organiser Kevin Wilson added:

“Chris was a popular winner in 2007, the crowd made him feel very special, what a race it would be if he was up against Jimmy and Harry Jones!“
