Lucy Evans


Lucy Evans joined Sale Harriers in 1996, aged 14 and represented the club every year for 22 years until the age of 36. In that time, she’s been a loyal club stalwart always proud to represent Sale Harriers. She’s arguably represented Sale Harriers on the track more than any other athlete in the club’s history - in the Young Athletes League, UKWAL (Premier), Jubilee Cup and Northern Premier League.

Among her proudest achievements as a Sale Harrier was being a regular part of the team that won the unprecedented number of UKWAL Premier League titles between 2004-2010 and then went on to represent Sale Harriers in the European Clubs Cup across Europe.

She said...

“I feel very privileged to have worn my club vest at many national and internationals competitions; British Championships, Olympic Trials, Manchester City Games and competitions in Europe and the USA. I remember at one meeting in Abilene, Texas, an official couldn’t quite believe that my vest was from Manchester UK. One of my most successful days as a Sale Harrier was at a club match in Leigh where I ran 2 new PBs of 11.61 for the 100m and 23.96 for the 200m. It was the first time I broke the 24.00 barrier for the 200m and is a day I will always remember”

Lucy has lost count of the number of times she’s represented Wales and is especially proud and honoured to have been selected for the Welsh Team at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Two more of Lucy’s career highlights were in 2014 when she ran the 4 x 100m anchor leg at the Glasgow Diamond League and in 2015 when she reached the final of the British Championships.

In 2018 she achieved a new pinnacle when she became the World W35 100m & 200m Champion at the World Masters Championships in Spain. Her 200m time of 25.19 ranked her No.1 W35 in the World that year.

Congratulations, Lucy.
