Northern Road Relays

It was a disastrous end to the Northern Road Relays on Saturday at Sefton Park with both the Men’s A team and B team taking a wrong turn in the final stages to finish with 2 incomplete teams. Even more disappointing as the A team was in a clear lead of over a minute going into the final leg.

Still, we showed the North the quality we have at the club and no-one could dispute we would have been champions except for a mistake in the heat of the moment. This was reinforced by Daniel Cliffe running the fastest long leg of the day, and Jonny Mellor a close 2nd. Ben Russell also ran 8th fastest short leg.

The women on the other hand performed admirably with a weakened team to finish in 19th place. Women’s results can be found HERE.
