Lower YDL – Trafford 18.5.19

Lower YDL – Trafford 18.5.19

Well done to team Altrincham on Saturday! We had a great turn out and our U13 Girls won the 4x100m Relay (as pictured). Another well done to Ben Lomas for winning the U15 200m race. Looking forward to the next event!

Manchester League Race 2 – U13 girls 3rd

Manchester League Race 2 – U13 girls 3rd

The second Manchester XC League fixture is always interesting as it's the first of the season for U11s and the first for U13s without a school clash. For the U11 boys, we could do very well this year if we can get the numbers out. It was disappointing to only get two...

U13 girls make top 20 in National XC Relays

U13 girls make top 20 in National XC Relays

If you'd asked me last year what the best performance was from our U13 girls, I'd have said their amazing 28th place at Mansfield. On that occasion a stunning performance by Aisling in particular bumped them well up the order. It would be a huge challenge this year to...

U13 girls 8th in first Manchester League

U13 girls 8th in first Manchester League

The first Manchester League of the season is a struggle for us. We always have a clash with the local school race that we host and this year lost a good portion of our team to that. Nevertheless, we did manage to get an U13 girls team out and an U13 boy, with Thomas...

NW Relays – Girls Show Strength in Depth

NW Relays – Girls Show Strength in Depth

For the second year in a row the girls were out in force at the NW Road Relays. We had three teams out for the U13s and two teams out in the U11s, matching last year's five teams when we gave this event a big push for Don Nichol's retirement celebration. This time the...

U9s win medals at Ashton XC

U9s win medals at Ashton XC

It's always exciting to see how new athletes get on when they take part in a club competition for the first time.  Every great athlete needs to start somewhere and many will be able to point to a modest first performance as where it all began.  Club competition is...

U13 Girls Complete Team in National XC

U13 Girls Complete Team in National XC

The National Cross Country is perhaps the best event on the British endurance running calendar.  The quality is immense, but also the numbers competing are impressive.  No venue brings it home quite like Parliament Hill.  Seeing the masses of runners...

Manchester XC League – Junior Season Review

Now that the cross country season is coming to close it's time to reflect on how the season has gone and how we are progressing as a club.  As the Manchester XC is our local regular competition, it is an important indicator.  To start with let's go into Mark Twain...

Wythenshawe Mud Pie

Wythenshawe Mud Pie

The rain was beating down hard on the window.  The street was full of puddles.  Do I really have to go out in that?  That was me being soft.  Imagine young athletes wanting to go out in that?  Just try and stop them! Wythenshawe Park is one of the flatter courses in...

U13 Girls 25th Team in Northern XC

For this year's Northern XC we went to Harewood House, north of Leeds.  Little was known about the course beforehand, but we should have been able to guess - lots of hills and mud!  It was a good course for spectating, providing opportunity for non-runners to destroy...

U11 Girls in top 3 teams at Woodbank Park

I'm coming to the conclusion that Woodbank Park is the toughest of the Manchester XC League courses for the juniors.  This year not only did it have the killer hill and 'the cliff', but it was full of mud.  Several of our athletes lost their footing during the run...

Juniors Impress in M’cr League XC

We had 18 juniors in action at Wythenshawe Sports Ground this weekend.  We managed to field full teams in four age categories, despite illness and conflicting events claiming a few of our athletes. A mention must go to Aisling McHale who continues to rise up the ranks...

Aisling Wins Inter Schools North West Regional Final

Aisling McHale produced another stunning Cross Country performance at the weekend to win the inter schools North West regional final.  She claimed the scalps of several runners who had been faster than her over the course of the track season. This is inherently a team...

U13 Girls National XC Relay Team Finish 28th

U13 Girls National XC Relay Team Finish 28th

After a top 40 finish in the National Road Relays and some very promising early season cross country performances, our promising U13 girls team took on the best in the country at the National XC Relays in Mansfield. We had the same A team as at Sutton Park, with...

U13 Girls 3rd Team in Heaton Park XC

The first Manchester Cross Country League fixture of the season is particularly interesting.  It offers a guideline as to how the clubs match off against each other and how athletes are performing compared to the previous year's races.  The race at Heaton Park was for...

U13 Girls Relay Team Tackle Sutton Park

U13 Girls Relay Team Tackle Sutton Park

Our senior men may not have qualified for the National 6 Stage this year, but the club were still represented at Sutton Park by our fantastic U13 girls team. Racing over 3.88km is a new experience for these girls and is a little on the far side for their age group. ...
