RADCLIFFE AC had 240 finishers in the popular Terry Nortley 10 Mile Multi-Terrain Race on Sunday.

First place went to non-club runner Lee Szymanski in 1hr 1min 57secs with first woman Prestwich AC's Hayley LLoyd-Henry, 33rd overall in 1:12:33.

Second among the men was Martin Dunn, of Manchester Front Runners, in 1:02:03 and third place went to Ian Carruthers, another non-club competitor, in 1:02:08.

The second woman was Katie Geelan (V45), of Bury AC, in 1:13:29, only one second behind her time last year when she was first, while third went to Alison Drasdo (V50), from Trafford AC, who clocked 1:15:01.

Lloyd-Henry’s mum Linzi Lloyd-Henry (V55), also a member of Prestwich AC, ran 1:38:31.

The men's team prize went to Bury AC who had three runners in the top 15, and the women's top team was Prestwich.

Both clubs along with others such as Wilmslow, Burnden and Rossendale were well represented in the race.

After a frosty start with some patches of ice on the challenging course around the trails, roads and paths of Ringley, the weather warmed to make running excellent for the event named after the club's former president and top local coach, Terry Nortley, who died in 2011.

Presenting the prizes at the race headquarters at Radcliffe Football Club were Radcliffe AC's president Tom West along with race director Fiona Lynch.

Sports massages were available after the race from Paula Abernethy and Jane Jackson and along with money also made from the sale of home-made cakes, £230.19 will go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

On the  club racing scene, it was a family affair when vet-50 Mark Williams travelled to Rhyl in Wales to compete.

He ran the Rhyl 10 Mile on Saturday, clocking 1:06:41 and junior member daughter Grace took second place in the Rhyl Mile Fun Run.
