BURY AC seniors were out in force in Sunday’s Radcliffe Terry Nortley 10-mile multi-terrain race and produced the winners in both the men’s and women’s races.

Patrick Babb was overall winner in 1hr 7secs after having a great battle with young club-mate Josh Birmingham who took second in 1:00:19.

It was a one-two-three for the women with Hannah Price showing a clean pair of heels to the other competitors coming home in 1:10:56.

Second place went to Katie Geelan (1:13:04) with team captain Lizzi Cheshire third in 1:14:44 and Bury won both team competitions.

Elsewhere, Hattie Vaughan maintained her high-quality performances in the pole vault by taking bronze in the National Indoor Championships in Sheffield.

Competing in the under-20 women’s field, she produced a best vault of 3.55m and was only a fraction away from a lifetime best of 3.70.

Multi-eventers Daisy Worthington, Jay Cook, Rosella Togo and Abigail Howard were the other Bury athletes who competed against the best in the country.

In the u17 age group, Worthington took fourth in her 60m heat (8.20), fourth in her 200m heat (26.76), fifth in her 60m hurdles heat (9.52) and 11th in the long jump (5.22).

In the u15s' competition Cook took fifth in his 60m hurdles semi-final (9.59) and sixth in the pole vault (2.81), while Togo secured sixth in her 60m heat (8.41), fourth in her 200m heat (26.95) and seventh in her 60m hurdles semi-final (9.74 PB).

Howard produced a new personal-best time of 9.71 to take sixth in her 60m hurdles semi-final.

Bury had two competitors in the English National Cross Country Championships in Leeds where Freya Potts took an excellent 80th place in the u15 girls' race, while Giles Bennett finished 1,426th in the enormous senior men’s field.

Roger Morley was first V60 in the triple jump competition in the English Masters Area Challenge.

His 8.70 leap is a season's best and sets a good platform on which the club’s vice-chair can build.

Meanwhile, club coach, Irfan Qureshi, is competing in the London Marathon on April 28.

He is using the event to raise funds to purchase some training equipment for the junior athletes he coaches. Donations can be made at www.gofundme.com/helpyoungerburyacmemberforamonkeybar.
