Northern Young Athlete Road Relays
Sale fielded 14 relay teams against squads from the top 50 endurance clubs from throughout Northern England in the Road Relay Championships at Sportcity
ISABELLE BURKE was our star in the U13 girl’s relay, running the 3rd fastest lap of the day whilst KATIE STRINGER was not much slower. Our ‘A’ team finished 7th, the ‘B’ team 14th (2nd ‘B’ team) and the ‘C’ team 31st (3rd ‘C’ team). All the girls are young enough to compete in this age group next year when they’ll be a force to be reckoned with. Well done to TAYLOR EDWARDS, NIAMH BOYD, DIDS PARISH, AVA TAYLOR, ERIN DONNELLY, NIEVE BARTON, HERMIONE MASON, OLIVIA WISE and OLIVIA NOLAN.
The U15 girl’s teams finished in 17th and 24th position whilst the U17’s finished 11th with FRANCESCA BRINT having an outstanding run with the 4th fastest lap of the day. Well done to MIA GIBBONS, ANOUSKA BROOKS, ALICE TONGE, PENNY TOWNSEND, LAURA HOLE, LIZZY TWITE, TIA RAE BARTON, MOLLY ATHERTON, JOSIE CANHAM and GEORGIA HAWORTH.
ALEX JAMES was an outstanding runner in the boy’s race running the 7th fastest time of the day in the U13 race. His team finished 14th whilst the ‘B’ team was 19th (3rd ‘B’ team). Well done to ZAC GAILLEMIN, ARCHIE Mc CARRON, WILL PARKER, HARRY EDMUNDSON and ALEX PATTEN.
The U15 boy’s team finished 17th and 31st whilst the U17 men finished 20th. Well done to SAM HEYWORTH, JOE BLAKEMORE, JOHN GILBERT, AIDEN STIRRUP, WILL DIXON, JACOB CORRIE, BAILEY HULSE, KIAN LINDSEY, JACOB BIRTLES, CHARLIE GODDARD and HARRY BOYD.
The whole event was organised by Sale Harriers and was a great success. The 40 young athletes who represented the club enjoyed competing at this level and will benefit greatly from having done so.
The cross-country season starts with the Manchester Area Cross-Country League at Wythenshawe Park on October 15th after which teams will be selected to run in the Northern XC Relays in Sheffield on October 22nd.
