City of Manchester BMC Development Races

Report: Donna Brackenridge Jones -

Pete and Donna's girls came out in force yet again in the City of Manchester BMC 600m Development Races at Sportscity on 28th May.

In the year 6 race Francesca Carosi ran a personal best of 1.58.03 and Jasmine Hannon earned a well deserved Silver in a personal best time of 1.51.09, she had a great race and dug in all the way but was taken on the final straight.

The year 7 event we saw another great race with 4 out of 11 athletes being from Stockport Harriers. The race was led all the way by Eliza Brackenridge Jones and Lucy Donaghy with another athlete from Haltom and Frodsham, but it was the Stockport girls who came through in a battle to the end with Eliza taking Gold in a personal best of 1.45.56 and Lucy the Silver in a best of 1.46.18. Both Emma Donaghy 1.55.73 and Katy Whiteoak 1.56.23 also battled through to the finish line.

In the year 8 event we had Leah O'Connell who ran in a very fast heat and came in in a personal best of 1.49.98.

Yet again well done to all the girls for their continued hard work.
