Results & Photos from the Northern Road Relays

These were held on Sat 16th September at SportCity Manchester.

Report from Andy Carter:

Another brilliant day for the club in the Northern Relays on Saturday at Sports City.
Fresh from 3 Gold medals in the North West's last week we followed up with a Gold, 2 Silver and some excellent placings in every age group.

Pride of place has to go to the U13 girls who took Gold winning by an emphatic 1 min 42 secs!
Holly ran the fastest leg with a time which would have been 3rd fastest in the U15 Girls! Grace was 6th fastest overall with Alice just outside the top 10.

This performance was closely followed by our U17 teams who both took silver medals with the girls renewing their rivalry with Liverpool who they beat last week, the roles were reversed this time with Liverpool taking Gold.
Holly ran the second fastest leg with Lucy running the 4th.
The U17 Men also came second to a strong Morpeth team with Ben clocking the 4th fastest leg of the day.

There were also some very encouraging performances by our other teams:
The U15 Boys were 11th with Ed 7th fastest, U13 Boys and U15 Girls were both 13th, - our Senior Ladies were 14th, 31st and 44th,
and finally our Senior Men were 23rd and 51st - that 23rd place ensuring that we will have a Senior Mens team at the Nationals in Birmingham on 7th October.

So, overall a very strong showing from Vale Royal - against some top clubs with a much larger catchment area.
