North West Counties Road Relays

Only two youth age groups were able to field teams in the North West Counties Road Relays last Saturday at Woodbank Park, Stockport but achieved success in both groups. The Under 13 Girls came 6th overall but were awarded a Silver medal for being the second Cheshire team to cross the line. The team finished the three legs of the course in 24mins and 20 seconds and individual performances from the team were Danielle Wallis (7:41) Rosie Christianson (8:25 and Lucy Bunce (8:08). A second Under 13 Girls team was short of a third leg on the day due to illness but good performances were achieved by Zoe Carter (8:57) and Louise Heron (8:35).

The Under 17 Men fielded a single team against some of the best middle distance runners in the country. Not daunted by this the team were awarded Bronze place over the 3,347m course. Team performance were Edmund Burgon (12:17) Edward Williams (11:10) and Richard Green (11:58) totalling 35 minsutes and 35 seconds.

The senior ladies fielded two teams with the first team taking the bronze medals in the Cheshire Championships. Alison Hartop led off  with a fine run of 12.20 followed by Rachel Pleeth in her first race back with a very creditable 13.15, with Nicky Le Good closing in 12.57. The second team finished 7th Cheshire team: Barbara Murray (13.24), Sally Pattinson (14.35) and Sarah Harris (13.49).
