Clean sweep of the medals at the North West Road Relays for Georgia Bourke, Naomi Sinclair, Hannah Richardson, Rebecca Jones and Chloe Lockett

The Club's junior girls section made the long trip to Lancaster for the Northwest /Greater Manchester Road Relays on a day of bad weather with rain and high winds all day, yet .the teams really came out with flying colours.

The under-15 and under-17 girls' races were both at the same time but it was the under-15 team that had the best results of the day taking first, second and third teams places.

The A-team of Chloe Lockett, Katy Whiteoak and Juliet Downs all had outstanding runs with Katy taking the second fastest leg just 3 seconds behind Elizabeth Greenwood of Blackburn taking the gold medal.

The B-team of Hannah Richardson, Lilly McGuinness and Rebecca Jones took the silver medal and the C-team of Naomi Sinclair, Heather Corden and Georgia Bourke made it a clean sweep taking the bronze medal. Also Abbie Wood Doyle and Emiley Hughes ran well in the D-team but did not have a full team.

The under-17 girls team of Ellen Downs, Ruth Sinclair and Elizabeth Apsley had great runs to take the gold medal, also Alice Hughes had a strong run on the first leg.
